A little about Sam Carroll (Sydney, Australia):

Sam loves jazz. What type of jazz? Basie said it best: “Four solid beats to the bar and no cheating!”

Sam DJs for lindy hoppers, and her usual goal is: manic crazed adrenaline junky party. The best men for that job are Count Basie and Lionel Hampton, and of course, in front of every good man is a good woman: Mary Lou Williams, Ella Fitzgerald, or Billie Holiday. Yes, Sam likes a big serve of meat and potatoes. Nothing complicated here.

Since COVID-19 stopped everyone having face to face fun, Sam has started DJing online. That means changing it up a little, adding in a wider range of tempos and musical styles, and …using the MICROPHONE! (Just DJ!)

Sam’s been DJing since 2004, and got into lindy hop in 1998 because she loved jazz. Now she runs large dance events as well as DJing. Before the face to face fun stopped, Sam DJed  and conducted workshops for DJs all over Australia and the world.

2020 has challenged jazz, but jazz has won.

Sam has most recently DJed online for Jazz Together in Melbourne (October 2020), Tracktown Swing’s regular parties (December 2020), and Global Online Social in the US (October, December). You might have heard her interviewed on the Track, playing on Yehoodi radio, or on that Swedish radio show En Halvetimme Jazz.
