Party and bands

Shuffle in style at OBW 2022.

Bands

Few listen to more swing jazz than dancers. To satisfy your ears and feet we have booked the very hardest swinging bands from the scene in Oslo. Playing for dancers is a skill, and these bands all got it, after years playing for us.

Thursday: Pre-party

Thursday is the big day out for Oslos balboa dancers. There are potentially three different options for live swing jazz and dancing – we will know more closer to the event, but all options are dancer friendly and awesome.

Friday: Simple Johnnys Easy Jazz Band

A favorite among local bal-dancers, these guys are playing every Thursday at Brødrene Bergh Cafe. It’s time to add drums and bring them on the big stage. We bring you the best of feelgood tunes from 1921 to 1949.  “You pay we play”

J.T Bergstøm : Guitar
Johan “Simple Jonny” Ohlanders : Upright bass, Vocals

Hornman

Drums

Saturday: David Skinner Quintet

The hardest swinging jazz quintet in Oslo! We are proud to present this all star band of seasoned swing jazz pros. This will be epic. They know what we enjoy after years and years of practice playing for dancers.

  • David Arthur Skinner – Piano, band leader.
  • Lars Frank – Sax
  • Kristoffer Kompen – trombone
  • Stig Hvalryg – bass
  • Marcus Lewin – Drums

Sunday – After party

Our DJs will play your favorite tracks and let you unwind and enjoy some good dancing. We don’t rule out live jazz, it could happen, but no guarantees.

Friday and Saturdays parties will be at Sentralen
