"A hybrid of swing-jazz and funky soul" says Steve Butler, lead vocalist and bass guitarist with the Swingdoctors. As an Australian 5-piece band incorporating a hot rhythm section with Sax, Guitar and Keyboards, their live shows provide musical intensity, improvisation with a "good soul feeling". This is captured on their latest CD, Soul Tonic.
From the opening track "Swinging Time" to the bands remake of Roy Montrells "Wild Saxophone", it's a mix that reflects the energy and diverse style of 5 musicians who really enjoy what they do.
Formed in early 1998, the band was a product of the Yeppoon Jazz Club. Original members, Steve Butler and Greg Henderson (Horns) are joined by Damian Clark (Guitar, Banjo), Peter Schravemade (Keys) and Stephen Robin (Drums and percussion). The band has gone on to be active on the Australian festival circuit playing a steady diet of live performances.
