Hello darlings, this past week I celebrated my birthday bash at the popular Swing 46 Supper Club and Lounge with Bandleader George Gee and American Jazz Vocalist John Dokes.

George Gee – bandleader of The George Gee Swing Orchestra here in NYC has been  known to preach about how#SwingMakesYouHappy to whomever may be within listening radius plus the many captive audiences at their countless shows! So much so, it’s also the title of their recent CD recording (which was on the short list for a Grammy nomination plus 12 straight weeks on the Jazz radio charts)!

2017 marks their 20th anniversary of performing weekly at Swing 46 Jazz & Supper Club located in the heart of NYC on Restaurant Row in Times Square. Big Band swingin’ for the both the local and international swing dance community supplemented by jazz music lovers and worldwide tourists – this little club that could – has withstood multiple trial and tribulations to be the last one standing (in the WORLD)!

A regular patron they were privileged to entertain on the SWING46 dance floor was the late, great Frankie Manning (the legendary original Savoy Ballroom dancer). Frankie always claimed The George Gee Swing Orchestra was his favorite modern swing orchestra and personally requested for them to perform at many of his numerous birthday celebrations. After his unexpected sudden passing right before his 95th birthday, They help maintain the flame by carrying on at that poignant event and then again at his centennial two years ago.

George Gee and his orchestra continues to perform every Tuesday and now they do a Sunday Brunch.

Also I had the pleasure of interviewing American Jazz vocalist John Dokes.

John Dokes is an American vocalist who first came to prominence as a championship lindy hopper in New York. He uses his smooth baritone voice to perform in big band and jazz genres. Singing a mixture of blues, ballads, popular songs, and jazz standards, John is currently the featured vocalist with the popular big band George Gee’s Swing Jazz Orchestra. His musical influences include Nat King Cole, Joe Williams, Jimmy Rushing and Frank Sinatra.
