Hot Swing Sextet

This well-known sextet from Bordeaux delights swing dancers in France and throughout Europe, and will take us back in time to the days of the hot 1930s jazz clubs, bringing back the popular and danceable side of Jazz music.

Paris and Harlem; Djanjo Reinhardt and Duke Ellington to Louis Armstrong -- the Hot Swing Sextet will make us dance till we drop!

Don't miss out and join the party!

The Old Dixieland Band

They come from Ciudad Real to transport us to the New Orleans of the early twentieth century giving us the chance to dance to the sound of the purest African-American rhythms!

The band evokes classical traditional jazz - a combination of different musical and cultural influences that gave rise to the unique style of Dixieland, heavy on joint improvisation and often played on the streets.

After producing two albums and touring in various places (including China), they are currently preparing their third record and are going to turn Donosti into New Orleans for one night! Don’t miss the Friday night party, you have to see them in action!

DJ Mr. Patxi “Crazy Legs”

Our local DJ Mr. Patxi “Crazy Legs” has been around for more than 20 years and has been a well-known figure in the city’s dance scene. Though he has experience with many different music styles, he now focuses exclusively on classic jazz, and this has been his contribution to building Donostia’s Swing scene.

He has participated in numerous international swing festivals in Barcelona, Hertfodshire, Paris, Montpellier, Toulouse, Bordeaux,... and just like last year, we will enjoy his wonderful swing collection at the Donosti Belle Swing Festival!
