THE OAKTOWN STRUTTERS:
The Oaktown Strutters are one of the Bay Area's hottest new swing bands, with an upbeat style of syncopation and classic swing jazz repertoire aimed especially at swing dancers. Led by Richard Chon on violin and his warm baritone vocals, this band also features John Nichols, legendary local master of jazz and swing guitar, bassist Bing Nathan, laying down a solid, swingin' groove, and drummer Bob Blankenship, one of the most artistic and musical drummers on the scene. These veteran musicians know exactly how to get a dance floor moving!
