Roy’s Hall proudly presents an extraordinary evening of jazz, jump and swing with the NYC metro’s greatest little big band – Swingadelic – featuring the Grammy-nominated vocals and harmonica of Rob Paparozzi (Blood, Sweat & Tears, Original Blues Brothers Band).
The dance floor will be open for this show and guaranteed seating will be limited to 150 seats. 35 “Dance Floor Only” tickets have been made available for those who intend to spend this extraordinary evening “cutting the rug”.
Swingadelic began in 1998 as the neo-swing movement was cresting. Upright bassist Dave Post gathered his jazz & blues playing friends together to play engagements at New York City’s Supper Club, Swing 46 and Windows On The World, the former restaurant atop of the World Trade Center. The band plays about 100 dates per year and has traveled from Maine to Atlanta. Swingadelic has maintained a residency for six years at Swing 46 in NYC where it performs every other Monday as a ten piece “little big band.”

New Jersey-based frontman, singer, & harmonica player Rob Paparozzi has been a blues performer since 1967. But Rob is far from being strictly a blues musician. In fact, he’s at home playing a wide range of music, ranging from rock to blues to jazz to pop. This versatility is reflected in the long and remarkably diverse list of major artists Rob has worked with, including B.B.King, Dr. John, Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston, Carole King, Roberta Flack, Culture Club, Cyndi Lauper, Randy Newman, Jimmy McGriff, and James Galway. Rob has toured the world with the “Original Blues Brothers Band”, featuring guitar legend Steve Cropper and special guest Eddie Floyd and also as Frontman-Lead Singer for the Legendary “Blood Sweat and Tears”
