Swing Shift originally formed as an amalgamation of refugees from several area bands, including the Bob Louis Big Band, the Kingsmen, Bifocals, Central Heat, the Redskins Band, and the Post-Nuclear Jazz Society. All of the musicians of Swing Shift, original members and newer arrivals alike, are passionate about making top notch music in the large group format. In 2007, the band conscripted veteran guitarist Matt Trimboli to lead Swing Shift as its musical director. The band continues to explore new musical terrain while maintaining its traditional big band roots.
