Biography: Andy Farber & his Swing Mavens
In early ’99 Andy Farber formed The Swing Mavens. The band is dedicated to performing standards, as well as Mr. Farber’s original compositions and arrangements that are reminiscent of the Royal Kings of Swing themselves: Duke Ellington and Count Basie.
The band’s unique style is a blend of straight ahead jazz, that draws from the best elements of the swing era to the “Rat Pack” stylings of Frank, Dino and Sammy- Throw in some greasy gut bucket blues and you have a dancing and listening music, that’s fun for all. Andy and his Mavens play music from the swing era to Be-Bop jazz, from The American Popular Songbook to Cabaret to Tin Pan Alley. Standards and Latin as well as brand new original Compositions for dancers, listeners, and connoisseurs of all things sophisticated (and definitely all things fun).
The Mavens come in all different sizes:
9-piece orchestra- (3 sax, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass, drums, vocalist)
4-7 piece- For a more intimate sound, features piano, bass, drums and saxophone (other horns can be added, up to 7 piece)
