George Gee and his Swing Orchestra have been at the forefront of the swing revival
since before it even started. The favorite band of swing legend, Frankie Manning,
they headlined all his major birthday celebrations, providing the live swinging sounds
for thousands of joyous dancers from across the world!
George Gee formed his swinging big band during his college days in 1980, and has never looked back.
A few years later, the band was in huge demand across the tri-state NY/PA/NJ region,
and was a frequent performer for the New York Swing Dance Society.
Fast forward to today, and the George Gee Swing Orchestra
has a mammoth resume that includes
hundreds of appearances at top swing clubs & societies, lindy exchanges, dance camps & weekends across the USA;
major concert appearances and music festivals around the globe; powerful "Battles of the Big Bands";
television appearances including being the first big band to play on MTV; audio recordings; and private
engagements too numerous to mention... they were even summoned to perform for rocker Ozzy Osbourne's
50th birthday party in Beverly Hills!
