WEST END STOMPERS, trad jazz and swing – Sac., CA
The West End Stompers are made up of some of Sacramento's finest trad and swing musicians. Over the years, each member has traveled the country playing for lindy exchanges, competitions, and jazz festivals. The band was originally assembled for the grand re-opening of Sacramento dance hot spot Midtown Stomp, and continues to perform there. The Stompers are sure to keep you dancing all night long with their swingin’ tunes!.
