Jazz in the head, rockabilly at heart and swing in both feet!

Long John & his Ballroom Kings present exquisite jazz classics, preppy peppy swing and jive hits as well as original songs written by the band. The repertoire offers songs of the 1940’s to 50’s that have been exported (by this international band) from Germany to France, Belgium and England. The ensemble provides an elegant, dynamic and full of passion distinctive style. They indulge their passion technically sovereign and perform with experienced international flair. The latest program has the sound and stories of the Berlin Air Lift (aka Operation Vittles of 1948-1949). The chamber orchestra occasionally uses the opportunity to pimp up the show with guests. Feel welcome to learn more about the band (press info below, pdf), GUESTS and repertoire.
