A nostalgic evening of dining catered by award winning Chef Antonio & the music of Sister Swing
Sister Swing is a trio of vocalists dedicated to fun and frivolity while preserving the vintage jazz sounds of the girl groups of the 1930s and 1940s. Whether they are singing swing, boogie woogie, ballads or 2 step, their sound is authentic and very much their own. They are backed by a powerhouse band of the finest and MOST cute musicians in Sacramento area. The band has humbly self-titled themselves “The Chopped Liver Orchestra” and yet, they are so much more than chopped liver.
The girls have been entertaining professionally for 20 years together, (yes, the same three women) but came from very different musical backgrounds before they met. Valerie, lead singer, honed her skills in top 40, Paula sang angelically in church and jazz groups, and Leigh cut her singing teeth performing classical and theater music in school. The story of how they actually met is something which can only be disclosed in dark places over drinks.
Sister Swing has had the honor of receiving the Best Swing Band from the Sacramento News and Review Magazine, Best of Sacramento in 2005, they’ve sung with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra as well as opened for the Glenn Miller orchestra. They had the distinct honor of singing for Bob Hope and his wife at the Wings Over Stockton Air Show. They love harmony, laughter, dressing up like Big Girls and just generally goofing off. Like most musicians, they wouldn’t know what to do with themselves if they weren’t making music and bringing it to other people. Thankfully, they haven’t yet had to find out. Hugs and Kisses from the Sisters! XoXo
