Swing Summit 2015 Set List

Swing Summit 2015 - Group 3
Swing Summit

Swing Summit this year was, for me, the best Swing Summit yet. Given that Swing Summit is never anything less than inspirational, that’s a pretty big thing. If you’re focussed on learning and improving your dance, this is the one to go to – if could spend all summer there, I probably would.

Anyway – I promised I’d publish a setlist from the Sunday night, so here it is.

Straycat Edits: That Wang Wang blues has an overly long and dull intro before it gets to the fun part, so I chopped that in half. That version of Joshua has … some pretty awful fanfares. OK – so some people do like them, but they make my skin crawl… so it’s either remove the horrible noise, or not play the track. And the rest of the track is awesome, hence the edit.

Apart from that, it’s a fairly standard set for me – playing things a little safe, as it was my first set of the event. Still a lot of fun to play.
