Swing State                Old-Time and Original Swing Quartet



Nancy's other combos

Swing State is a dynamic quartet that serves up vintage and original swing, Dixieland, and old-time country music, with Greg Schochet on archtop guitar and mandolin, Bill Pontarelli on clarinet, Nancy Thorwardson singing lead vocals and socking out the rhythm on guitar, and Gary Sloan rocking the bottom end on bass. This band soars, with Bill and Greg weaving intricate and inspired melodies, while Gary and Nancy create a landslide of swing rhythm. This is a happy collusion—a swinging synergy that makes everybody want to hoot, holler, and shake that thing!
