We listen back to our conversation from this past spring with members of the Southwest Florida-based band The Swingin’ Clique including music performed live in the WGCU studios.

The band’s performances create a unique immersive experience with their fresh take on traditional jazz, showtunes and melodies from the Great American Songbook, inducing nostalgia or anemoia for America’s swing era of the 1930s and 1940s.

We’ll meet band members Hunter Dahlen (vocals, guitar, violin), Jonathan Ingram (bass), Stephen Johnson (trombone, trumpet), Bobby Ryan (drums) and Amy Sbarra (vocals).

The Swingin’ Clique members Hunter Dahlen and Amy Sbarra will perform Nov. 4 at the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum on Sanibel Island from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Dahlen and Sbarra will also perform as a duo Nov. 6 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Survey Café in Bonita Springs.

The Swingin’ Clique will also perform Nov. 10 from 8 to 11 p.m. at the World Famous Cigar Bar in Fort Myers.
