This stylish vocal jazz group was formed in Santa Monica in 2002. Swing Shift focuses on jazz and reharmonized pop and Broadway standards from the 30's to the present. The group sings mostly its own arrangements, with Phil and Richard providing them. Swing Shift performs at private parties, churches, malls, and clubs. They also appeared as one of the featured a cappella groups on KLCS’s television series “Mosaic.” Swing Shift was honored at the 2004 Los Angeles regional Harmony Sweepstakes, where they won the best arrangement award for their 6-part version of “Where is Love?” from the musical Oliver! If you love rich sounds, complex harmonies, and creamy-smooth blend, you’ll love hearing this group .
