The hot swing music of the 1930s marked the beginning of a new musical era in the USA. The birth of radio, records and talkies brought a nation into dance ecstasy as never before. Since the "white" radio stations initially refused to play the music of black artists, the jukeboxes soon became a magnet for audiences. From the mid-1930s onward, handmade, new sounds from great swing orchestras began to be played alongside black artists such as Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday.


Welcome to the AMERICAN SWING NIGHT with the "Billboard-NR.1-Hits" of popular orchestras and artists from a time, which is today one of the most creative decades of light music and has shaped it until today. The King Of Swing Orchestra revives this exciting time in a concert with the original arrangements of the following orchestras, among others:
