Third Coast Swing is heavily influenced by the late Belgium born Romani Gypsy, Django Reinhardt & His band, The Hot Club Of Paris 1930’-1940’s. Think Louis Armstrong with a French accent. Third Coast Swing relies heavily on traditional sounds from the Manouche Valse to the Corsican influences of guitarist Tchan Chou Vidal.
Third Coast Swing has performed with National Touring acts such as Frank Vignola, Denis Chang, Jimmy Grant, Grant Flick and more. Concerts in 2022
are scheduled for Crooked Tree in Traverse City, Ludington Amphitheater, &. Kal-Tone Guitars in Kalamazoo,  Jazz Society of Detroit and more.
