The Speakeasies Swing Band! are a Swing band born back in 2010 in Thessaloniki, Greece. Since then, they have been touring all around the world and shared the stage with famous artists such as Parov Stelar, Ray Collins, Cherry Poppin Daddies, Hillbilly Moon Explosion. Among all, they’ve performed to special events, such as Hollywood’s star Jessica Chastain’s beautiful wedding. They took part in many festivals, such as the Diga Diga Doo Festival in Bangkok, Thailand, Royal Jazz Fest in Bahrain, Hep Cat’s Holiday in Great Britain, Copenhagen Lindy Exchange in Denmark, Bansko International Jazz Festival in Bulgaria, Summer Jamboree in Italy and many more. They released their first EP “Bathtub Gin” in 2012, alongside with the music videos “Bright Lights Late Nights”, and the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) award winning “Black Swamp Village”. Three years later they are back with their debut full length album “Land of Plenty”, an album consisting of 10 songs in Swing, Jazz, Blues and Dixieland style. In 2017 they participated in Athens & Epidaurus Festival with the theatrical performance “Homesickness Blues”, directed by Akillas Karazisis and arranged by Kostas Vomvolos. In 2019 they have released the single “Walkin’ Away Blues” alongside with the music videos "Walkin' Away Blues" and "O Pasatempos".
