Now celebrating its 30th year of jazz festival, wedding, private club and corporate event performances, Rex Allen’s Swing Express has established its large West Coast following through seven years of Hyatt Hotel tea dances in the Bay Area and Hawaii as well as a long stint at The Claremont Hotel in Oakland. They’ve shared the stage with Helen Forrest, Lionel Hampton and other greats from the Big Band era.
In an appearance in Atlantic City co-billed with the legendary vocalist Connie Haines, one reviewer called their performance “Enlightening…brings back the great days of the big bands.” A 5 to 9-piece, Rex Allen’s Swing Express plays excellent big band arrangements. Their 5-piece and 8-piece tracks can be heard on the mp3s below.
They are available throughout San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, Southern California and across the U.S.
