The Hot Sugar Band

The Hot Sugar Band are a seriously swinging time machine. One that takes you right back to the 1930′s ballrooms of Harlem, straight in to the Golden Age of Jazz. Do not let their young faces fool you. Despite their young age, they seem to have already captured the true spirit of jazz. Their motto is to swing and make everybody around swing with them. They play their own arrangements of classics by Fats Waller, Count Basie, Fletcher Wallen and Django Reinhardt. The Hot Sugar Band is one of the brightest stars in the swing dance scene. We are looking forward to having them for the second time at Leapin’ Lindy.
