The Revisionists embody the premier sounds of East Coast Swing. Led by trumpeter/ arranger Danny Jonokuchi, the Revisionists perform their own unique renditions of classic dance hits as well as original works. Timeless melodies delivered by vocalist Alexa Barchini are reminiscent of the sounds of Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day, and Sarah Vaughan. The bands repertoire also includes selections from Count Basie, John Kirby Sextet, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Benny Carter, and Sidney Bichet. Members of the band have performed at Lindy Hop events in Sweden, South Korea, Spain, Holland, Germany, Canada, China, Thailand, and across the United States. The bands first album “Let Me Off Uptown” was recorded in New York City as will be released in 2019.
