Zonky Jazz Band

Zonky is really excited about music. Especially this music, the music of the pre-War jazz era. They want to share it with as many people as possible, and along the way, introduce you to (or re-acqaint you with) the music of our hometown heroes, the Crosbys (Bing and Bob), Mildred Bailey, and Al Rinker. Yeah, they're from right here in little ol' Spokaloo!

But they don't stop there! They love to play everything from Louis Armstrong to Mary Lou Williams to Slim and Slam to Nat King Cole to Benny Goodman Sextet to Django Reinhardt to the Kansas City 5, 6, and 7s to Fats Waller and beyond. (Did we mention? "Zonky" is a song written by Fats Waller and Andy Razaf!)

Zonky performs a monthly live show at The Lucky You Lounge music venue in Spokane, WA. It's called "Zonky Night." They are also available for concerts, dances, weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, and more. Zonky loves to perform for concert-goers as much as we do for lindy hoppers and swing dancers. 

For questions about booking, please contact their bandleader, Garrin Hertel, at

Northwest Swing Dance Company is honored to work with Zonky Jazz Band for many different events!

Dancing to live music is such a vital part of what we do and we are thankful to have them around to make that happen.

Please support the musicians by attending a show, sharing a video, or simply liking their page on Facebook!
