Still working on that hot first release.



Since their debut in 1995, The Red Hot Swing (formerly The Central Park Stompers) have been thrilling audiences with their perfect blend of jazz, jump blues, originals, and high-octane swing.

Beginning at a club in Hartford, Connecticut to a crowd of more than four hundred Lindy hoppers, it was clear that this was a band to watch. The RHS have performed at numerous clubs, including The Five Spot, Roseland, Swing 46, Opia Lounge, The Empire Room, and Tavern on the Green. They were asked to bring their unique sound to the Re-dedication ceremonies of Grand Central Terminal in New York City. In 2008, the band was invited by the US State Department to tour the Middle East as cultural ambassadors.

The RHS have been featured on "E! Entertainment TV," and on "Fox5 Good Day NY," where they performed live at sunrise on Y2K at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn. Under the Stompers name, the band has recorded two albums: "The Central Park Stompers" and "Bad Girl Shoes."

The Red Hot Swing continue to delight music lovers at colleges, museums, summer music festivals, weddings, and corporate events. A partial client list includes the Aldrich Museum, the Bethlehem Musikfest, the Corning Museum of Glass, Estee Lauder, Marymount College, Merchant's House Museum, Princeton University, Fordham University, the Newark Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, Storm King Art Center, and Old Westbury Gardens.

Comprised of world-class musicians, the Red Hot Swing are Vanessa Trouble, lead vocals; Michael Hashim, tenor saxophone; Marty Bound, trumpet; Stefan Schatz, drums; and Mark McCarron, guitar and arrangements.
