Blue Max, Swing Band


Blue Max

Blue Max, founded in 1978, has attracted unfailing audiences with its sight and sound experience. Through the years, the band has toured leading clubs, concert halls, and universities and has traveled to 35 states, Canada, and 20 countries in Europe and South America. Blue Max has also worked extensively throughout the Caribbean.

The musical backbone of Blue Max is built on everything from the jitterbug to the Lindy hop, with fresh new arrangements of the swinging compositions of the great bandleaders of yesteryear: Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and more. From the old favorites to selections from such new artists as Royal Crown Revue, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, and the Brian Setzer Orchestra, Blue Max will swing you with rockin’ versions of yesterday’s and today’s tunes.
