Bay Area pianist/accordionist Rob Reich brought together a joyous ensemble of originals and covers to take listeners back to the classic swing era of the 1930s. Reich was accompanied by a 7-piece version of the Rob Reich Swings Left band and San Francisco singer Mae Powell. With covers such as “I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire” and original songs from the group’s self-titled debut album, the group left smiles on on-lookers. The group also inspired many couples to bring out their best swing dance moves throughout the show! Rob Reich Swings Left is truly a talented group that brings excitement and authenticity to the San Francisco swing dance scene!
