About the band

    After they met in 2010, saxophonist Brian Einstein Lassiter and swing dancer Robin Lassonde started talking about how there was a disconnect between what jazz musicians thought was good swing dance music and what dancers thought was good swing dance music. All too often, bands with great musicians would play songs that were too fast, too slow, too long, or just not fun to dance to.

    After many long conversations, Rampage Swing was born. A band by swing dancers, for swing dancers. After writing 24 arrangements in the space of 4 weeks, the band debuted to over one hundred swing dancers at Swing Ann Arbor. Since then, Rampage Swing has continued to play great swing dance music and has become the favorite of dancers around the Midwest.
