We continue our fan-favorite picks from previous years on July 24th with Helena’s Queen City Swing Band. Formerly known as the Speakeasy Dance Band, this nine-piece band has been performing across Montana for more than 25 years. Beginning with the “Big Band” sound of Stan Kenton, Benny Goodman, Woody Herman, the Dorsey Brothers, and Duke Ellington the Queen City Swing Band has expanded selections to include music up to present day.
As the piano, percussion, saxophones, trumpets, bass and trombone play melody, harmony and rhythm, you will want to tap your toes, nod your head, and make room for a dance floor in the Chapel. That’s what happened the first time they performed at the Festival. We had concert attendees literally dancing in the aisles! You definitely don’t want to miss this fun.
While the group doesn’t have a formal website, if you’re on Facebook you can find them here.
