Westwind Swing Band's Mission: 
To preserve the music of the Swing Era by sharing our joy of classic swing band arrangements as accomplished musicians.

Westwind Swing Band was started in 2014. This 18 piece band was formed by Joe Singer, our lead clarinetist, who was primarily inspired by the music of Artie Shaw. The band focuses on music from the 1920's to 1940's, playing a combination of swing music and jazz tunes popularized by iconic bands like Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and of course, Artie Shaw! The band consists of talented musicians from around the twin cities and features vocalist, Robyn Barziza Chargo.

Our portfolio of tunes is constantly growing and we are available to play at a variety of functions, ranging from private events such as weddings and parties, to community concerts and swing dances. Typical venues that work well for us are banquet and concert halls, city park band shells, party rooms, wineries, breweries, retirement communities, and senior residences.

Because the musicians are unpaid, and the band is part of a community band, our performances are very reasonably priced. The fee we charge helps us to pay for the cost of music and equipment, rehearsal space and storage.

We are available for your listening and dancing pleasure! If you are interested in having us play for your event, please contact Joe Singer at 952-693-3168 or Steve Chargo at 952-994-7758.  You may also email us at
