Avery Brewing 15th Anniversary Party

The Swingin' Seven made its third appearance in as many years at the annual Avery Brewing Anniversary Partythis last weekend on Sunday, August 3rd, 2008. The folks at Avery have a gift for picking the hottest day of the year for the event, but some clouds and even a few sprinkles here and there, made the heat seem not so bad. And of course there were plenty of excellent refreshments available to cool down one's parched throat.

We performed to a very receptive crowd from 12:3o to 2:00 featuring our signature swing tunes and even featured three vocalists for the gig. Adam Kuyt sang "You, Me and the Bottle Makes Three", Jan McLoughlin sang, "How 'Bout You" and "Taking A Chance On Love Again" and Pam Rowen sang, "Straighten Up and Fly Right".

The band also played some tunes relatively new to the line up: "Brazil", "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie", "Tuxedo Junction" and Artie Shaw's "Hop, Skip and Jump".
