The Jeepers

THE JEEPERS magically evokes the atmosphere of the famous venues of Harlem of the 30s. The band’s leader and conductor, Giorgio Cuscito is a multi-instrumentalist and an arranger as well as the finest icon of the Italian Swing dancing music.

The Jeepers consists of:

Giorgio Cuscito - conduct, arrangements, tenor saxNicola Tariello - trumpet
Massimo Pirone - trombone
Marco Guidolotti - baritone sax, clarinet
Andrea Candela - piano
Paride Furzi - double bass
Marco Rovinelli - drums

The repertoire of the band is precisely selected for swing and lindy-hop dances, which have recently made their comeback to the ballrooms, and it is also a good occasion to listen to live music straight from the 78 RPM recordings such as Duke Ellington, Johnny Hodges, Cootie Williams e Rex Stewart. A real "Harlem Renaissance”!

The Jeepers will perform for the first time in Salento during the free-entry parties on the great stage of “Lungomare degli Eroi di Otranto” and they will rock it!
