Rooted in Philadelphia, The Swinging Foxes deliver tight boogie-woogie, sultry jazz, and sassy rhythm&blues. Their swinging rhythms and bluesy grooves will woo you in while Amber Rae, the powerhouse front woman, swaggers confidently above. Rae's delivery of pure authentic emotion and smoky vocal tones intertwine with the bands halting guitar licks and colliding horn riffs, giving their audience a vibrant and riveting performance. They will lead you on a striking romp through the sounds of the 40's and 50's. Deliciously and unabashedly retro, The Swinging Foxes are full on spontaneity, adventure and sass!
