“It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing!”
Join the Charleston Jazz Orchestra for the evolution of electrifying big band swing music that took America by storm. From its birth with legendary ensembles such as Charleston’s own Jenkins Orphanage Band, Benny Goodman, and Fletcher Henderson Orchestras, to the indelible mark it continues to make on jazz today, it’s no wonder it’s gone down in history as the greatest music of all time.
