The Swing Shoes

Boutique Nominee 2017
Tourism Awards 2017
2017 Nominee
Best of Santorini


The Swing Shoes were formed in Athens in 2006. Initially a street guitar duo, they gradually evolved into a four-piece with the standard gypsy swing instrumentation: two guitars, bass and violin. At first their music appears to follow the rules of the swing folk idiom. It is rhythmic, it is vibrant; it is feel-good music. But the way they cover traditional Greek tunes, jazz standards, and several atypical numbers is so unpredictable that the listener finds himself puzzled, wondering “where does this familiar tune come from?” Adonis (g), George (g), Panos (b), and Andreas (vl), combine their influences to create music with a passion. Their first album “Ladies & Gents, HERE’S THE SWING SHOES” – released in 2010 on Prominence Records – has received rave reviews. The Swing Shoes appear regularly in many clubs in Athens and play festivals all over Greece. They perform as an instrumental quartet and also as a six-piece with female vocalist Eirini Dimopoulou and drummer Nick Zografos or female vocalist Sughaspank! and percussionist Oxocube. Occasionally the set-up includes full personnel (8 people). ….


Django Reinhardt, Romane, Duke Ellington, Manolis Hiotis and all the Swing and Traditional jazz scene.
