About Swing 4 Sale
Swing 4 Salefeatures four seasoned musicians interpreting and re-defining the music of our times, old and new. Lead by a sultry saxophone, the band includes keyboard, drums and bass. And if that wasn' t enough, the combo's vocal harmonies are an added treat.
Born and raised in Southern California, Leslie, the band's leader, began her musical career learning to play the saxophone in the 5th grade. Soon after graduating from high school, she joined a local big band: Big Wednesday.
Today, years later, she is still playing alto sax and is the female vocalist with that same band! After director, Tom Balderrama's, retirement, Leslie now enjoys the job of running the band, renamed: Balderrrama's Big Wednesday. See the Big Wednesday flier linked above.
With the help of drummer friend, Bob Morphis, she started Swing 4 Sale. In one form or another Swing 4 Sale has been performing together for over a decade. The group originates in the Inland Empire. This red hot quartet has played for audiences and dancers throughout Southern California. They have graced stages as far away as Ventura to the west and La Jolla to the south.They largely play for ballroom dancers, but they are also popular at weddings, concerts in the park, wine walks, and in restaurants.
Their popularity stems from their music which spans many decades: from the 20's, through the 50's, and some 60's and 70's.
