”A Night of Swanky & Fats Waller Music"


Visiting the UK from Hawaii, Patrick von Wiegandt will perform great old jazz tunes and the music of Fats Waller. He will be joined by the London Swanky Band performing songs from their new CD - ’Swanky Sings Fats Waller’ which was just recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios.

Patrick von Wiegandt is a whirlwind. You’ll spot him in Hollywood, then London, then Hawaii, then New York, and everywhere he lands he seems to know all the hep cats. How to explain the “Swanky” phenomenon?

Part of it is the 40 years he’s been in the music biz. He’s made the transition from musician to producer, promotor, engineer and then for the last decade back to performer. After playing guitar and singing in bands as a teenager in Hawaii he worked in sales for all the major labels in New York, then moved to LA and learned from Grammy-winning engineers and producers while working with stars as diverse as Barbara Streisand and Alice Cooper. He’s been a voting member of the Recording Academy (Grammys) since 1983.

Patrick has gusto and style. He knows what he likes and presents it so well you couldn’t help but catch his vibe, like a second hand cigar and top hat buzz. Patrick isn’t another vocalist going after Sinatra’s swagger. The titles on his Swanky discs are drawn from the American songbook and jazz cannon. He loves the class and craftsmanship that went into song making in the 20s and 30s.

The Swanky album includes tunes like “Puttin’ on the Ritz”, “Dream a Little Dream”, “Blue Skies”, “We’ll Meet Again”, and a great arrangement of “Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?” Reflecting a Hot Club, with instrumentation including a violin and accordion, the music isn’t in that style.

"Swanky is a mood...a presence...a voice. Patrick and his band take you on a trip to the past, and leave you smiling."
Del Martian Chronicle – Arthur Allen

"I think it's a masterpiece of immense quality. Your voice is hypnotic simply great."
Hollywood Happenings – Alession Miraglia
