Samish Bay Swing

Drawing material from Mike's new album, "Mike Faast sings the Standards," Mike Faast & Samish Bay Swing focus on music from the great swing era, Latin, swing, blues, jazz and a smattering of 60s' soul. "From Swing to Soul". Expect to hear jazz standards such as "All of Me", "Georgia", "Paper Moon", "If I Had You", "I Got Rhythm", "It Don't Mean a Thing", blues and soul such as "Sunday Kind of Love", "Lost Mind", "At Last", "Is You Is", and R&B from the 60's such as "Drowning in a Sea of Love", "Stormy Weather", "My Cherie Amore", "Rainy Night in Georgia", country swing such as "The Night Life", "Walkin' After Midnight", and jazz like "Take the A Train",  "Jersey Bounce", and many more. This is great dance music, however, it's also a lot of fun to just sit and listen to. Whether you need a 5-piece band for your town fair, festival or corporate event, or a smaller jazzy combo for your wine bar or cocktail party, we have you covered.
