The NY Western Swing All-Stars use their unique instrumentation to explore that infectious and incredibly diverse set of styles that came together in the 1930's to become known as "western swing." Is it country music? Is it swing music? Yes and yes!

The NY Western Swing All-Stars have appeared at Lincoln Center, the Brooklyn Folk Festival, Bayou & Boogie Festival, Princeton Jazz Festival, Stone Barns Harvest Fest, as well as countless weddings, BBQ's, pig roasts, corporate picnics, and birthday parties, in addition to a steady schedule of shows in and around New York City. The band began performing together in early 2010.

Western swing, the genre, evolved as fiddlers and other musicians in western Texas, began blending their old-timey fiddle dance music with folk, early country, dixieland jazz and swing, blues, and the popular music that they heard on the radio. Bob Wills and Milton Brown were two notable pioneers of western swing, and both are huge influences on the NY Western Swing All-Stars. Can you dance to it? Heck yeah! Can you sit and listen to it? Sure can, unless your feet direct you otherwise!

The NY Western Swing All-Stars usually perform as a 6-piece band, but can sometimes scale down in size for smaller events, and often add musicians for a larger, more diverse, more thumpin' sound. Based upon the event, the song selection can be geared more in the country direction or more in the swing/dixieland jazz direction, or let us feel out the crowd, and we'll mix things up just right. For weddings, we can generally accommodate a reasonable number of special requests for first dances, ceremony music, etc.

Our standard sextet instrumentation includes:
Fiddle, mandolin, guitar, clarinet, lap steel or pedal steel guitar, bass, drums, female AND male vocals.

Optional instruments that can be added:
Trumpet, trombone, piano, accordion, second fiddle (for the classic twin-fiddle western sound)

Dennis, Tamar and the guys were phenomenal to work with. Several of my guests said that the band was so good that they felt like they were being treated to a concert they would have paid to go see. Others said they were simply the best wedding band they've ever heard. They were so easy to work with. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

These folks were amazing! We had a wedding that brought together several (very) different groups of people, and every single one of them loved the band! The music is great dance music, great mood music, and makes for a great event. Additionally, the band is super professional and really knows how to work a room. They knew when to get everyone up on their feet (and have the skills to do it), when to slow it down, and how to make sure everyone had a blast. Dennis was great to work with, and willing to learn new songs for us. I can't say enough good things about them!

I hired Dennis & company to play at my wife's birthday party and they exceeded all my expectations. I was hesitant to hire a band through this site that didn't have any reviews yet, but I liked their videos and audio clips....... and then to my happy surprise, their live sound was on a whole other level. These guys are totally pro, all amazing musicians, incredible vocals, and showed up on time, were easy to work with, and nothing but a pleasure to have at our party. My guests loved them, and I would recommend them to anyone else.
