The Shanghai Woolies Dance Band just added two new songs to the repertoire! “Anything Goes” from the New Broadway production is so much fun! Our star vocalists Nadine Stanton sounds amazing on this one. We also added a true classic from the Tommy Dorsey Band “Say It”! Frank Sinatra turned his early career with Tommy. This is such a beautiful melody and lingers on and on. Thanks to Maddie and Chistopher for asking us to learn these gems!
The Shanghai Woolies Dance Band began over 20 years ago with a deep study of Louis Armstrong’s music mixed with popular Hot Jazz songs from the 1920’s. Thanks to all of the song requests over the years, we now have sounds & styles from all over the world. Don’t be surprised to hear Madeleine Peyroux “Dance me to the end of Love” in the same set as João Gilberto’s “Desafinado”. By the time you leave a Woolies performance, we want you to feel like you’ve traveled around the world! Next on the list is Berlin 1930s. Perhaps Mack the Knife will be on the next set list!
