Thread Name: Favourite Swing tune?
Subject: RE: Favourite Swing tune?
Of all the stupid moves one can make, this one worked. Once played a wedding when the cue to start the procession was unexpectedly early. We had been playing something with a swing beat, I don't remember what, but folks seem to love the upbeat stuff just prior to the ceremony. Anyway we were still swinging when we started that old warhorse Pachelbel's Canon In D. We kept it up for two chord progressions (what's that, 16 bars or so?) before going "straight". Strangely, it was very well received.

Yup, anything can swing, including the bride down the aisle.

Peace, Mooh.
