About the Performer

Borne of a profound love for the early years of swing, Americana, and rock ‘n’ roll, Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints transport you to the rollicking good times of speakeasies, honky-tonks, and roadhouses. The band, with upright bassist and exceptional vocalist Birch Pereira at its center, features skilled and versatile musicians who share the love of – and put a super fresh and highly danceable spin on – the American song traditions. theginjointsband.com

Beginning Swing lesson with Kevin Buster

Kevin Buster has been dancing for over 13 years. He has studied with original master Savoy swing dancers like Frank Manning, Norma Miller, Sugar Sullivan and Dawn Hampton and also with master swing dancer Lennart Westerlund (leader of the Rhythm Hotshots and Harlem Hotshots). Also a tap dancer, Kevin has been studying the relationship of Swing, Tap, and African dancing; his study has taken him to Guinea West Africa to learn from Grand Master Sorell and Youssouf Kombassa both of Les Ballets Africains.

Kevin is also a saxophone, flute, and clarinetist and plays swing, blues, and jazz music with various local bands including his own, Kevin Buster's Lunch Money. Kevin's strong musicality, patience and improvisational ability ensure fun and exciting classes for all dancers regardless of ability.
