JAVATOWN SWING ORCHESTRA

The Javatown Swing Orchestra is an organization of talent, energy and style that leaves audiences chanting for more. The band plays tunes from the 30s to the 70s with its own brand of class and style.

See the Song List.

Doing mostly classic tunes of the Big-Band and Jump-Blues eras rearranged for four horns, guitar, acoustic bass and drums, it packs the punch of a little big band without the overwhelming volume.

Topping it off are the fantastic soloists throughout, weaving jazz lines within the sets to give dancers time to groove and jazz enthusiasts time to dig. In addition to Jake on trumpet and vocals, core players include Jim Sisko on trumpet, Saul Cline on tenor sax, Dan Haeck on trombone, Dan Kramlich on piano, RJ Whitlow on bass and Mark Yeend on drums.   Band Bios


Jake Bergevin's Javatown Swing Orchestra
 


With back-lit, "retro" stage fronts (a la Glenn Miller), period attire or tuxedos and a swanky stage appearance, the Javatown Swing Orchestra is not only one of the best sounding, but also the best looking bands on the Seattle Metro swing scene.
