Live Music with Mood Swing

Mood Swing is a Blacksburg, Virginia smooth jazz quartet with vocals specializing in the wonderful standards of the Great American Songbook, think of composers such as George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Harold Arlen.

Their mellow sound, which appeals to all ages, ranges from bluesy ballads to up-tempo swing with some Latin jazz thrown in. You may even hear a jazzy Beatles tune!
