The Schwings are a vintage swing and New Orleans style jazz band hailing all the way from the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius! Founded in 2011 by legendary jazz musician and multi-instrumentalist Remis Rančys. The Schwings rapidly rose to popularity in Lithuanian jazz festivals, clubs and lindy hop dance events. Initially playing golden standards of swing, Brazilian, and gypsy jazz, the band has since begun recording original compositions.
Their recent albums “Fyodor” ( June 2019 ) “Teisutis” (March 2019) ”Good Thing” ( August 2020 ) and “ Plazi” ( November 2020 ) reached the #1 bestseller in swing/jazz category on Bandcamp – a popular online music distributor.
Spotify data suggests, that most of The Schwings fans live in the USA.
Now performing internationally, they have ‘schwung’ their Lithuanian spirit across the UK, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Greece, Poland, Estonia, Finland and Russia.
