Band du Pays Swing

Band du Pays Swing is a five piece Ashland, Oregon-based swing band featuring playful, danceable renditions of jazz classics from the 1920s through the 1980s set in an East Coast Swing style. We’re fronted by the wonderfully skillful vocalist Kaitie Warner, and feature Merrill Smith on bass and vocals, Tony Brussat on guitar and vocals, Stephen Gagné on saxes, clarinet and keyboards, and Matthew Kriemelman on drums.

We are available for dances, gigs, weddings, and events of all kinds in the Rogue Valley. We’ve played at the Britt, for large and small gatherings, shows, and parties, monthly Dances at Paschal winery for about a decade (until Covid hit) and are a popular wedding band in the valley. We make a point of playing at a relaxed volume -- enough to get your feet tapping, but no earplugs needed!
