Band du Pays Swing

Band du Pays Swing is a five piece Ashland, Oregon-based swing band featuring playful, danceable renditions of jazz classics from the 1920s through the 1980s set in an East Coast Swing style. We’re fronted by the wonderfully skillful vocalist Kacie Garner, and feature Merrill Smith on bass and vocals, Tony Brussat on guitar and vocals, Stephen Gagné on saxes, clarinet and keyboards, and Mike Fitch on drums.

We are available for dances, gigs, weddings, and events of all kinds in the Rogue Valley. We’ve played for large and small gatherings, shows, and parties, and have become a popular wedding band in the valley. We make a point of playing at a relaxed volume -- enough to get your feet tapping, but no earplugs needed!

We regularly offer dances / concerts at Paschal Vineyard, a few minutes off the freeway in Talent,  We open up the central floor area for dancing, and there’s ample table space to enjoy Paschal’s selection of fine wines, appetizers, and amazing chocolate cake.
