Swing Piggy

Bands from the area seem to love to come up with eccentric names, but this was my favorite band name of the ones I saw. These guys were really good, and played lots of covers from all over the musical map, in addition to their own compositions. Each of them is in another band, and has material from those as well. Sadly, there really wasn't a Swing Piggy CD. I bought one of the guys' CD (Dave with the beret) and it is nice, but isn't the same vibe as they all have together. . .The bass player is a dead ringer for my friend Dan Sweetman!

Love the feel of these. Great sketches!

Love bluegrass music. I assume it was bluegrass.

Some tunes were very bluegrass, others New Orleans R&B, some Elvis, very cool mix of stuff. . .I really enjoyed these guys!
