BAND INFO  IN ENGLISH

Doc Scanlon's Cool Cat Combo has been touring internationally to a rising tide of acclaim for their intimate brand of Hot Swing, New Orleans Jazz and demonically danceable rhythms. The group plays popular music of the 1920's through the 1950's; their song list includes the great standards of George Gershwin, Irving Berlin and Cole Porter as well as the hot jazz of Count Basie, Fats Waller and Benny Goodman. The band is nostalgic and contemporary at the same time, astonishing listeners with blazing solos and heartfelt harmonies. With multiple tours of Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and the USA, they are traveling all over the globe more frequently each year, playing a mix of concerts, nightclubs, dances and festivals.

The music they love to play is Hot Swing Jazz & Blues of the 1920’s through the 50’s, and they excel at the dance rhythms of that colorful period. As you will able to tell, they also have a LOT of fun playing together. Each member has distinctive personalities that come across in their live performances. So sit back and enjoy, or better yet, get up and dance!
