Album Notes
Drawing its musical influences from American roots music- swing, jump blues, and boogie woogie- Eight to the Bar is known for its outstanding instrumentalists and sophisticated musical and vocal arrangements, highlighted by 4-part male/female vocal harmonies. With the support of independently produced CDs and videos, Eight to the Bar has cultivated a large, enthusiastic following that has put them in clubs and festivals from London to L.A. Their rigorous performing schedule (approximately 200 dates per year) has included shows with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Manhattan Transfer, Robert Cray, Neil Young, the late Ray Charles, and a recent 5-country European tour.

"You Call This Swing?", their 9th CD, was born from a need to take a fresh approach to making another swing CD. Taking 12 of their favorite classic rock tunes, they broke them down, spun them around, applied their swing and jazz sensibilities, and added some of their trademark wackiness, resulting in a lively, varied record that has captivated both swingers and rockers alike.
