Inspired by the great jazz diva Ella Fitzgerald and the Swing Dance movement alike, Swing Swing Swing! brings together the unmistakable voice of Kellylee Evans and the arrangements of Petr Cancura and cast to bring you a good old fashioned swing dance. Whether you want to dance or just listen, this show is all about Swing Swing Swing! dancers and all!
The Canadian singer/songwriter Kellylee Evans is a chameleon-like performer, whose natural charm and improvisational jazz vocal style have shone on her adventurous journey through jazz, soul, pop and hip-hop over the past decade. In that period, she released two indie solo albums of original songs in Canada, winning a JUNO Award for "Best Jazz Vocal Album" for Nina, her impassioned tribute to Nina Simone.

Saxophonist and composer Petr Cancura is a Czech born Canadian who spent the last 10 years in New York City performing with everyone from Danilo Perez and Joe Morris to Julian Lage. Petr re-established his base as Ottawa two years ago as the Artist-In-Residence of Carleton University, the Program Director of the Ottawa Jazz Festival and the Musical Director of the National Arts Centre’s Crossroads Series, where he re-imagines the songs of current Canadian Songwriters for an all-star jazz cast.
