“We are jazz, GET IT”
   Swinging Blades
The Swinging Blades were formed over a few beers in a Sydney pub when it was decided to put together a hard swinging band playing nothing but great old music from the golden age of Jazz. A regular gig came up at the Marrickville Golf Club and the Blades were born (taking their name from the vintage golf clubs the band prefers when they go for 18!)


The band features National Jazz award winners Elana Stone, voice, and Aaron “Baz” Flower on guitar the Blades have created a Sydney weekend institution. All killer, no filler, the Blades swing their way through the standards repertoire with unwavering energy.
