About this event

Summer Swing Nights is back for the 2022 summer season and announced new event dates for August 4th, 5th & 6th! Now in its sixth year, the swingafied music series features a seven-piece band, swing dancing and The Swing Tones. The Swing Tones bring you back to the days of vocal jazz by blending big band sounds and nostalgic tunes of the swing era, with tight vocal harmonies and postmodern twists.

Executive Producer and founder Aaron Jacobs says this is the ultimate big band experience accessible for all generations of people in Southern California. “We are keeping high quality musical experiences, interactive dance concerts of a former era, alive,” Jacobs said. “For me, SSN is the flagship show and a chance to highlight our Swing Tones sound, unadulterated.”

This year SSN returns to The Automobile Driving Museum in El Segundo. The big band includes seven vocalists, and seven band members. They will also be joined by The LA Swing Dance Posse, vintage vendors and local food trucks.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, musical performances came to a halt, but not for Jacobs or The Swing Tones. Jacobs says the experience was difficult but with assistance from the ADM and LA Swing Dance Posse, the team produced several drive-in shows all outdoors. Now that vaccines are easily available and mask mandates have lifted across Southern California, The Swing Tones are back and better than ever. “It’s been amazing,” Jacobs says. “It's what we've been missing from our lives during the big quarantine. Nothing beats the live music experience, sans auto-tune and synthesized sounds.”

Tickets for Summer Swing Nights 2022 go on sale now at Tickets range from $35 to $100. Prices go up at the door.

More about the Swing Tones: The Swing Tones debuted at Summer Swing Nights in 2018 at The Automobile Driving Museum in El Segundo with a mission to preserve the legacies of big band and swing music while contemporizing the experience with some modern twists. Highlighting vocal harmonic sounds such as “The Andrews Sisters” and “The Manhattan Transfer,” The Swing Tones also take modern tunes and "swingify" them, similar to the popular Postmodern Jukebox.
