FRANKIE MANNING 103rd B-DAY CELEBRATION

Come celebrate Frankie Manning's birthday with one of the greatest swing big bands in the world - David Berger's mighty Sultans Of Swing. Joining them in a rare appearance in the US is an Australian vocal sensation Hetty Kate. Dance your night away at our spectacular celebration in honor of the founding father of Lindy Hop. Those without happy feet, who will join us for solely listening, will be no less delighted by this musical pairing ordained in swing heaven.

DAVID BERGER - David Berger is recognized internationally as a leading authority on the music of Duke Ellington and the Swing Era. Conductor and arranger for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra from its inception in 1988 through 1994, Berger has transcribed more than 750 full scores of classic recordings including more than 500 works by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. Berger has composed and arranged more than 1000 pieces over a career spanning 50 years. David Berger's orchestras has performed all over the U.S. and Europe, as well as on TV and in movies.

HETTY KATE - Pure of tone, sweet sounding and dangerously infectious, Melbourne jazz vocalist Hetty Kate with five albums under her belt has fronted jazz bands across Australia and internationally for many years, and recently has been embraced by Australia’s lindy hop dance community as a swinging vocalist and band leader with a wicked sense of humor and an infectiously fun repertoire.
