SWINGBOOTY draws its biggest influences from jazz greats like Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli as well as modern gypsy jazz and Bossa. It is a six piece band that frequently features guest players and vocalists. It is fronted by band leader/violinist Christian Lange. In 2016, the band released its second album "More Hot Peanuts published as a USB release including five live videos.
Expect good energy, fun times, and a very eclectic audience at Swingbooty shows. As one music writer put it: "When Swingbooty performs, it's not just a night of hot gypsy jazz, it's an experience."
