There’s a treat in store when the Dutch Swing College Band comes to town!
The DSC Band was founded back in 1945 and have recorded an incredible 100 albums under this name.
To provide a bit of context, during World War 2 the Nazis banned jazz music in the Netherlands and several youngsters wanted to preserve this music against all odds. They practised secretly, copied illegal radio broadcasts and were determined to found a school for jazz music when the war was over: the Swing College.
On Liberation Day, May 5th 1945, the Orchestra of the Dutch Swing College had its first public performance. Their members gave lectures, organised jazz meetings and started to teach jazz music. The name soon changed into Dutch Swing College Band®.
In 1960 the DSC Band (leading the field of traditional jazz in the Netherlands) became professional, won innumerable prizes and still performs successfully worldwide to this day.
The DSC Band returns to The Brewhouse as part of their World Tour, following performances here in 2015 & 2017.
