About Us

The Mood Swings Orchestra is a big band, in the style of the traditional dance bands of the 1930s, 1940s and beyond.
Under the direction of Judy George, the full band consists of 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, piano, bass, guitar, drums, and vocalist. Our core personnel are all women.

Swing tunes make up the bulk of our repertoire. We also mix in some waltzes, foxtrots, tangos, rumbas, cha-chas, ballads, and the occasional polka.

Founded in August 2003, we have since grown and evolved from a small ensemble into a full 20-piece swing orchestra.

We serve several communities, primarily: the senior community through nursing home and senior center performances; women's support organizations, through benefit concerts; and the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans) community, as a dance band for LGBT dances, dance classes and events.

While we strive to sound professional, we welcome musicians of all levels, , and we encourage less experienced players to learn and improve.

Above all, we learn together about swing music and jazz improvisation, and we have fun.
