About this event

Ever thought 'Bloody oath this Chisel song would sound heaps good as a swinger'? or 'Crikey, this Acca-Dacca tune could use some 4 part harmony'? Yeah nah, neither. But struth, wouldn't that be a bloody ripper? 'Sweet As Swing' reimagines your favourite Aussie songs from 'Waltzing Matilda' to 'Highway To Hell' and serves them up with a jazz twist!

This premier features original arrangements heavily featuring 4 part male vocal harmony inspired by The Hi-lo's, The Four Freshmen, and Lambert Hendricks & Ross.

After a sell out season at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe, Sweet As Swing are back and sounding better than ever, with a you-beaut band!

★★★★ "An unexpected delight" This And That.

Presented by:
Sweet As Swing

These four musicians met while singing around South Australia and interstate in The Conservatorium's renowned 'Adelaide Connection' choir.
Apart from showcasing their vocals, the performance will feature Kelly Doddridge on trombone, Marcus Ryan on guitar, Andrew Casey on piano and Ryan Casey on trumpet.
