Best 20-Piece Swing Band

The Dan Zola Swing Big Band

The Dan Zola Swing Big Band bops out a ballroom storm, making crowds fox-trot, jitterbug, and waltz like it's 1944. The band serves up two-hour sets every Tuesday at the 100th Bomb Group, a restaurant named for the Air Force division of the same name and decorated with WWII memorabilia. While Zola and his boys concentrate on material from the '30s and '40s, they'll play some more modern selections too, Sinatra's "I've Got You Under My Skin" among them. Granted, the crowd skews toward the gray-haired, but it's a popular date spot for fortysomething couples, not to mention tattooed twentysomething zoot-suit revivalists. Go, daddy-o.
