THE HOLLYWOOD HORNETS DANCE TEAM

COVER CHARGE: $15 PER PERSON

THE JONATHAN STOUT ORCHESTRA is a 14-piece dance orchestra dedicated to preserving classic big band swing musica from the late 1930s and early 1940s. Founded by two dedicated swing dancers and vintage lifestyle enthusiasts, and using only the best of LA's jazz community, the orchestra treats both dancers and listeners to the great yet under appreciated tunes from the swing era, while still being one of the most danceable bands playing swing today.

The Jonathan Stout Orchestra plays the great tunes from the books of the best big bands such as the Benny Goodman Sextet, Count Basie, Artie Shaw, as well as Lester Young, Django Reinhardt, Illinois Jacquet, Duke Ellington, Coleman Hawkins, plus featured vocal numbers from Ella Mae Morse, Anita O'Day, and the young Ella Fitzgerald.

The band features leader Jonathan Stout on electric and acoustic archtop guitar, the trumpet and vocals of Jim Ziegler, reeds by Albert Alva, Jim Garafolo on upright bass, the indominable Chris Dawson on keys, and Josh "Kid" Callazo on skins, with featured vocalist Hilary Alexander.
