The Swing till you drop band was created in October 2011 by
Yiannis Vakaloudis – guitar
Chris Kosides – violin

who keep the tradition of Gypsy Swing that first appeared in late 20’s by Django & Grappelli.
The music is interesting with the possibility of improvisation on a melodic theme. Besides traditional tunes like “Minor Swing” repertoire includes their own songs like “Swing 12″, “Swing till you Drop” “Trip to Rotterdam” “Trip to Limnos” and several remixes of familiar sounds for the listener.

The “Swing Til You Drop” began with numerous appearances on the streets of Aristotelous Square, Navarinou in Greece. For a start it took the rough shape name “The End Of School Swing Trio” for a live that was announced in Rockarolla Radio in order to advertise the band.
The next schema name arose from the observation that in the beginning they used to play music in a teaching space dance lindy hop, the world did not stop dancing, even though the program was three hours! Played swing till you drop, ie “Swing till you drop”!

The performances continued in many cafés and jazz bars in town and outside Thessaloniki. The duo also participated in the festival of music school in Thessaloniki, in Swingalonica festival (at the party’s closing festival) and Djangofest of Thessaloniki.
They also collaborated with musicians / dance groups Jitterbugs, Lindy Hop Greece and social space “school” in dance lessons swing.
