During the height of the great Lindy Hop Revival of the late 1990s, CRAIG GILDNER and TOMMY GRECCO decided to form BLUE SKY 5. Purveyors of classic American swing and small group jazz from the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s, this ensemble keeps a traditional feel, and adds to the classic repertoire by writing originals so authentic, you’d think they’d been penned by Mercer or Razaf. Long-time favorites of the DC swing scene!!
