We played at Creekside Blues and Jazz 2018 on Friday, Brothers Drake on Saturday, and closed out the weekend with a Concert on the Green in Worthington!
And the average temperature between the three days was 88 degrees.

Thank you to the couple of you we saw each night- you know who you are.
We started the weekend by playing on the Community Stage at Creekside on Friday. Our friend Daniel Hoy from SwingColumbus came out to say hello!
On Saturday, we played with Bella Ruse, and The Jeffs. Rick Carr took some great pictures of us! Even more of the SwingColumbus family came out. Oh! And happy 10 year reunion, Thomas Worthington class of 2008!
Finally, on Sunday, we got our chance to play on the Worthington Green! It was a packed lawn as the high reached into the 90’s. We were joined by our good friend on drums, Troy Kunkler!
Come on by to Rambling tonight at 10:00 and catch our set. We play until midnight. It’ll be the coolest set we’ve played all month! And we hit at 11:00am at Sunlight Market this Sunday.
We played with Squirrel Nut Zippers on Thursday, where we opened with a 40-minute-exactly set of our best bangers. Someone was so amazing as to take a video of the end of Gigolo and all of One and Only and send it to us! Check it out below:
Then we went to Jackson, Ohio on Saturday evening to play for the Southern Hills Arts Council‘s Evening with the Arts. We swang and swung until we could not swing any more. They caught some pictures of us in action.
Finally, a group of us played at Sunlight market this morning! Two hours of real-life swing music down on Gay Street across from Tip Top. Big shoutout to Bob at the –> Webner Family Blog <– for catching us at today’s Sunlight market and –> writing a little about us <–! We’ll be there again in June: come by from 11am-1pm on June 17th and say hi!
We’re very happy to announce that we are opening up for one of our favorite bands and biggest influences, The Squirrel Nut Zippers on Thursday, May 17th at Skully’s Music-Diner! They are on tour in support of their latest album (which you can find here), called Beasts of Burgundy.
But the album that changed us before we were even a band had to be Perennial Favorites. Take a listen to “Suits Are Picking Up The Bill”, “Ghost Of Stephen Foster” or “That Fascinating Thing” and you might hear a little bit of us in there.
