BOMBAY JIM & THE SWINGING SAPPHIRES
Bombay Jim & Swinging Sapphires

Hot on the Swing City "A" list from years past, they are back again for 2014 after some great shows last year. Since the release of their 2001 CD "Keep Honkin" they are hailed as one of the country’s hottest swing bands. Featured on the HBO Series, "Family Bonds", and heard on jazz and swing radio stations throughout the nation. A sure bet for any dancer.
