Swing Shift

Mixed Vocal Jazz Septet from Los Angeles, CA

Swing Shift is not your father’s barbershop quartet. Let’s settle that right away. Have a listen, and you’ll understand. Rich harmonies, lush arrangements, and finger-popping rhythms make this group one of the most artful exemplars on the contemporary a cappella scene. This stylish vocal jazz group specializes in jazz standards from the 30's on as well as popular songs from the 60’s, and 70’s. You’ll also hear their unique sound on contemporary pieces and music from Hollywood and Broadway. Aside from appearances at the usual venues: clubs, churches, malls, libraries, and private parties, Swing Shift also appeared as one of the featured a cappella groups on KLCS’s television series “Mosaic.” Appearing in both the 2004 and 2005 Los Angeles regional Harmony Sweepstakes, Swing Shift won best arrangement honors in 2004 for its 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. And bring your ear muffs: these guys make a huge sound. (Gosh, maybe they are a barbershop quartet…)

Members: Tyler Azelton, Michaela Page, Linda Richter, Solomon Katz, Andy Wolf, Phil Azelton, Richard Gilinsky
