Classic Swing News

Like most bands, Tyneside's Classic Swing's live gigs have been put on indefinite hold. However, their time indoors has not been unproductive. Both Alan Rudd and Tommy Moran have been beavering away writing new charts to add to their already extensive library so that when VC Day eventually arrives they will be primed and ready to start swinging again.

As well as that, they have a new website (see link) that will keep the fans updated as well as enabling tracks to be heard from a CD recorded in 2019 at Ayr Jazz Club.
