6 Foot Swing

Regardless of where they play, whether it’s a swanky night club like the Peacock Room at the Davenport Hotel or a vintage dance floor like the second floor theatre at CenterStage, 6’ Swing entices even the most timid toe tapper to rise up and cut the rug. Founded in Spring of 2007, they’ve become one of the most sought after small ensemble jazz bands in Spokane, playing shows or parties nearly every weekend.

The reason for their infectious danceability and utter popularity? On first glance, no one would deny that it must be due to the charming vocals of long and tall band leader Heather O’Brien. However, all hep-cats and jitterbugs know that in addition to a hot canary, a great band needs a great rhythm section, and on this count, 6’ Swing enjoys an embarrassment of riches. Having the luxury and sophistication of a full, four piece rhythm section gives dancers an avalanche of rhythmic textures without ever losing the one thing that means everything: SWING! Named the best band by the Pacific Northwest Inlander’s reader’s poll, The Inlander describes their music as, "very tight, bouncy and perfect for the kind of acrobatic dancing you’d imagine would accompany it."
