“Third Coast Swing featuring Grant Flick does not disappoint.” 
~ Sally Bolle, Detroit Jazz Society

Third Coast Swing has been playing the music of The late Belgium-born Romani Gypsy, Django Reinhardt & his band, The Hot Club Of Paris (1930s-1940s) — think Louis Armstrong with a French accent. Third Coast Swing has changed it up a bit and is currently touring with Detroit native Dave Bennett, violinist Grant Flick, vocalist Ella Jury Jarvis, and pianist Andrew Henley. Jury Jarvis and guitarist Kaedin Plummer did a deep dive into early jazz classics by Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Billy Holiday, then arranged these songs to fit Third Coast Swing’s eclectic style. Third Coast Swing has performed with national touring acts such as Frank Vignola, Denis Chang, Jimmy Grant, Dave Bennett, and The Midwest Gypsy Jazz Fest in Madison, Wisconsin. Third Coast Swing has performed regionally at The West Michigan Jazz Society, The Ludington Amphitheater, The Ludington Area Center for the Arts, Bell’s Eccentric Café (Kalamazoo) , Detroit Jazz Society, Crooked Tree Art’s Center, Kerrytown Concert House, The Playhouse at Whitelake Ramsdell Theater, Westshore Performing Arts and more.
