We want the very best jazz music for Oslo Balboa Weekend – and have booked Norways hottest and hardest swinging jazz band, Jazzombies for both Friday and Saturday!
On Saturday special guest Majken Christiansen will perform with Jazzombies. She sings revitalized jazz in the tradition of the great jazz divas, and Ella Fitzgerald will always be one of the greatest inspirational sources.
Jazzombies is pianist David Skinners swing dance ensemble. They play classic jazz tunes by musicians such as Fats Waller, Benny Goodman, and Louis Armstrong, as well as originals by David Skinner, and is comprised of some of the best swing musicians Norway has to offer. Jazzombies plays jazz clubs and festivals in addition to being the favorite for Norway’s biggest swing dance events. The group prides itself on creating dancer-friendly dynamic and rhythmic contrasts, while always swinging hard and keeping the dance floor busy. Check out their web page!
