CLINT BAKER'S GOLDEN GATE SWING BAND:
Clint Baker, jazz musician extraordinaire and walking encyclopedia of jazz music and history, returns to the Woodchopper's Ball with his incredibly fun Golden Gate Swing Band. Whereas his New Orleans Jazz Band focuses on New Orleans Trad jazz, Clint Baker's Golden Gate Swing Band swings in the spirit of hard-driving Kansas City swing. Tight and powerful, they will make you want to dance every song! Great music for Lindy Hop, Balboa, and all things swing!
