We listen back to our conversation with members of the Southwest Florida-based band Suwannee Swing Saloon

Back in March, the group transformed WGCU’s studio into a western swing revival with a live performance of the dynamic string band’s mix of western swing, classic country, blues and jazz tunes. The group made its debut at the Marco Island Center for the Arts, and it performed at WGCU ahead of making its Fort Myers debut. 

The Southwest Florida-based band Suwannee Swing Saloon transforms WGCU’s studio into a western swing revival with a live performance of the dynamic string band’s mix of western swing, classic country, blues and jazz tunes.  The group recently made their debut at the Marco Island Center for the Arts and performs at Point Ybel Brewing Company in Fort Myers tonight (March 22) at 7:00 p.m.   We’ll hear from band members Hunter Dahlen, Kathryn Fox, Jonathan Ingram and Robert Kissinger.
