Ladies Must Swing

April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Ladies Must Swing Big Band

Love big band music? Then don’t miss out on ‘Ladies Must Swing’ every first Thursday Night of the month!

Madison’s own all female big band features five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones, piano, bass, drums, congas, guitar and vocalist.  LMS plays a wide variety of selections from the great American Songbook.

Our story is about inspiration and encouragement given by lovers of good music and finding out what entertains and makes them happy. Over 22 years ago, LMS became Ladies Must Swing which came from Linda Marty Schmitz, President of the Madison Jazz Society, which also gave us our very first performance opportunity!

The presence of women playing jazz has gotten a lot of attention over the last decade and we are grateful for that. We intend to keep the musical momentum going and invite you to come see us, hear us, dance to us, celebrate with us, and re-live history.
