Marmalade Swing

Do you like dancing to live music? GREAT! ​

The Marmalade Swing are experienced musicians from the Berlin scene, they play in different so called "big" or "small" bands in the style of the 20s / 30s ...

The phrase "jam session" came about in the 1920s when white and black musicians would congregate after their regular playing gigs, to play the jazz they could not play in the bands they performed in.
When Bing Crosby would attend these sessions, the musicians would say he was "jammin' the beat", since he would clap on the one and the three. Thus these sessions became known as "jam sessions".

Marmelade Swing try to keep the swing as improvised as possible and this feeling of "relaxness" in their music...

How cool would it be to dance to this improvised music! Let's get swing musicians and dancers together.

DJ Wuthe am „Grammophon”

Stephan Wuthe, 1966 in Berlin geboren, seit annähernd 40 Jahren der zerbrechlichen Schellack-Schallplatte als Sammler treu, ausgebildet als Theaterplastiker, Mode- und Screendesigner, hat seine Leidenschaft für die Musik und das Lebensgefühl des Swing zu seinem Beruf gemacht: als Autor, Herausgeber und Bearbeiter historischer Swing-Serien auf CD, als Berater aktueller Swing-Orchester und Swing-Showtänzer und als europaweit tätiger DJ für Swing-Abende.

Mittlerweile von Stockholm bis Cannes, von Budapest bis London auf Festivals und Workshops – sowohl als Swingtänzer (Social Dancer), DJ und Referent zu Themen der Jazz- und Jazztanzgeschichte – gebucht, hat er nicht nur eine unermessliche Sammlung von Fotos, Platten, Dokumenten zusammengetragen. Er hat auch etliche Sängerinnen und Musiker getroffen, deren abenteuerliche Geschichten über die Zeit der dreißiger und vierziger Jahre in sein Buch „SWINGTIME IN DEUTSCHLAND“ (Transit Verlag, 2012) einfließen.
So ist es ein großes Vergnügen, die schönen Seiten vergangener Jahrzehnte zu transportieren und den Freunden der guten und anspruchsvollen Unterhaltung zu eröffnen. (Gudrun Fröba)
