The group’s name says it all… Ladies Must Swing… and swing they do! They play big band swing music and much more! Their story is about inspiration and encouragement given by lovers of good music and finding out what entertains and makes them happy. The group is based in Madison, WI, although many of their 19 energetic dames live in surrounding communities.
Over 15 years ago, the group became Ladies Must Swing which came from Linda Marty Schmitz, President of the Madison Jazz Society! The Madison Jazz Society gave them their very first opportunity to perform. The presence of women playing jazz has gotten a lot of attention over the last decade and they intend to keep the musical momentum going. You are invited to come see them, hear them, dance to them, celebrate with them, and re-live history!
