Georgia Brooks Swingtet – monthly residency
Join the Georgia Brooks Swingtet at Open Studio for crepes, wine and delicious swinging tunes. Led by diehard swinging jazz dancer Georgia, the Georgia Brooks Swingtet brings to the stage a lively repertoire of jazz tunes from the 20s, 30s and 40s. Focused on the spirit of jazz as dance music the Swingtet will have you tappin’ your toes and jiggling about in your seat to the rhythm of swingin’ jazz. Whilst learning her operatic arias by day at the Melbourne Conservatorium, Georgia became obsessed with the music of swing and jazz by night, learning to swing dance and becoming a prominent dancer, performer and teacher on the Melbourne swing dance scene. In 2012, Georgia made the foray into the world of swing & jazz singing and discovered a natural flair for interpreting many of the well known (and some lesser-known) works of the early twentieth century, adding her own touch of fun and sophistication. Since then she has appeared at swing dance festivals all over the country and regularly in Melbourne and Geelong at venues such as the Victorian Jazz Club and Dizzy’s Jazz Club.
