The Schwings Band:

The Schwings are a vintage swing and New Orleans style jazz band hailing all the way from the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius! Founded in 2011 by legendary jazz musician and multi-instrumentalist Remis Rančys. The Schwings rapidly rose to popularity in Lithuanian jazz festivals, clubs and lindy hop dance events. Initially playing golden standards of swing, Brazilian, and gypsy jazz, the band has since begun recording original compositions.
Their most recent album “Teisutis” (March 2019) reached the #1 bestseller in swing/jazz category on Bandcamp - a popular online music distributor.
Spotify data suggests, that most of The Schwings fans live in the USA.
Now performing internationally, they have ‘schwung’ their Lithuanian spirit across the UK, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Poland, Estonia, Finland and Russia.
With music as diverse as the seasons - the Schwings can burn like summer, be nostalgic as autumn, pure as winter and uplifting as spring – all in the space of one evening.

Eight people, divided sectionally in minimalistic version that refers to the big-band (some of them are lindy hop dancers) focuses on maintaining the characteristic swinging articulation and fluid dynamic changes in such a way that the body starts to tremble and a smile appearing in heart of the dancers doesn't let them stay still! The band was created by Filip Presseisen, and it is a part of Krakow Section of Culture, Music and Swing Dance called KMiTa Swing.
