About the event

We were so excited about our original plan for music this year, we became determined to represent that vision within this special broadcast. Which means that, for each of the eight planned theme-nights at Lindy Focus, the show will include a tribute of newly-recorded songs and dance performances. So over the course of the broadcast, we will spend time embracing the following musical themes:

Jonathan Stout’s Lindy Focus All Star Orchestra paying tribute to:

  • Chick Webb Orchestra with Ella Fitzgerald
  • Duke Ellington Orchestra
  • Lionel Hampton Orchestra
  • Mary Lou Williams (arranger/pianist for Andy Kirk’s Twelve Clouds of Joy)


  • Duke Ellington Small Groups Tribute presented by Josh Collazo
  • The Lionel Hampton All Stars presented by Michael Gamble
  • Count Basie Small Groups presented by Michael Gamble
  • The Grand Slam Sextet

The whole broadcast event will be live-hosted by familiar faces (announced soon!!) and, for those unable to attend in person this year (or those who are just fans of great swing music and dancing)—the show will be a great way to spend your New Year’s Eve with some of your favorite artists in the swing world.
