The swing era was the period when big band swing music was the most popular music in the United States. Though this was its most popular period, the music had actually been around since the late 1920s and early 1930s, being played by black bands led by such artists as Duke Ellington, Jimmie Lunceford, Bennie Moten, Cab Calloway, Earl Hines, and Fletcher Henderson, and white bands from the 1920s led by the likes of Jean Goldkette, Russ Morgan and Isham Jones (Wikipedia). "Skip" is our version of a style of music long since
forgotten by older music lovers, and rarely encountered by young music lovers. So come with us, get your dancing shoes, grab a partner and "Skip" back to a time when working up a sweat on the dance floor means having a good time.
