Heart of Dixie
Heart of Dixie is a young swing band from Brno, Czech Republic, which seems tailored to the lindy hop dance community. Their repertoire is a mix of old school dixieland and heavy big band hits, mixed with modern pop songs with swing arrangements. The majority of its members are students of the jazz department of the prestigious Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno.
The classical dixieland band formation (trumpet, clarinet, trombone, guitar, double bass and drums) can lead to deception: with his excellent singing skills and his background in academic jazz, they move with ease in the tradition that encompasses 20’s to 40’s.
The group specializes in vintage parties, social dance events and lindy hop festivals. In recent years they have visited multiple events in Germany, Austria, Poland, Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria and other European countries.
In some words, they are a group of boys with great energy and deep passion for swing music. For this reason they always guarantee to turn each concert into an unforgettable night.
