Atlanta Swing Orchestra

Archived Bio. Not part of the current Performer list.

The Atlanta Swing Orchestra originally started from a group of musicians in the Atlanta Lawyers Orchestra who decided that they wanted to play swing band music. The jazz band was known as "Frivolous Motion" which is a well known legal term for time wasting endeavor.​

As time went on, the lawyers became fewer and musicians from many other professions joined the swing band. The motion has become less frivolous and it was decided to pursue forming a professional dance band in the tradition of the great swing bands of the forties and fifties. While all understand that it is unlikely to become a vocation for any of us, the goal is to play The Great American Songbook and do it well enough to continue this great tradition into the new millennium.
