About

Energetic and playful, the Secret Swing Society has been spreading the sounds of early jazz pioneers such as Duke Ellington, The Mills Brothers and Django Reinhardt around Europe and the US for three years now.

When listening to them you travel back in time to the golden era of jazz music, the time of the Godfather movie, slower life and slower cars. This international society came into being during the members’ music studies in Amsterdam, and they are:
