Rob Levy's Big Finish at Molloy

Among the 20 consummate Big Band jazz musicians who complete Swingtime’s traditional instrumentation of reeds, brass and rhythm are numerous accomplished soloists, including performers with Lionel Hampton, Billy Eckstine, Sammy Davis, Jr., Jerry Vale, Ed Shaughnessy, the Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller and Buddy Rich Big Bands, as well as veterans of such popular regional big bands as Ira Alexander’s Swingtimers, Hal Hoffman Orchestra, Ben Grisafi Big Band, Al Miller Big Band, Danny Vincent Orchestra and Bob Rotunda’s Stardusters Big Band.

Swingtime features a female vocalist — Bobbie Ruth — who recreates the “gal vocal” stylings of such legendary singers as Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Eydie Gormé, Helen O’Connell, Billie Holiday, Rosemary Clooney, Bette Midler and Judy Garland, and the band’s male singer — Zack Alexander (winner of Hoboken’s 2016 Sinatra Idol contest!) — emulates such Big Band crooners and swingers as Nat “King” Cole, Bobby Darin, Joe Williams, Dean Martin and, of course, the immortal Frank Sinatra.
