ON STAGE

Entertainment: this is the key word that describes the work on stage of the Simone Grassi Swingset. An innate professionalism binds the musicians and involves the audience in each enthralling performance with a refined complicity. Each concert pays homage to the great Swing tradition with very personal solutions, an experience proposed with elegance and lively communicative tension, creating an empathic relationship with every unique audience. Between anecdotes and live music, Jazz and gags, each performance is always full of smiles, rhythm and story.

An artistic vitality that enchants and engages:

Swing will not save the world, but it is always by your side“.

In this way Simone Grassi opens the beginning of each show.

LIGHTNESS, TALENT, FUN. SWING.
