A french songbird, a trombone, a guitar, a bass and drums…. All what it takes to make delightful music!
Brought together by a mutual love of french cuisine and french music, Myriam Phiro and Robbie Kleinberg began their musical partnership and Miss Phiro’s Swing Party was born. Having a swingband has always been one of Myriam’s dreams; considering her range from a seductive and elegant jazz singer to an energetic swingdancer, the transition was obvious. Robbie’s flair for it came after a decade of education in American Jazz, and found himself captivated by French music at first “bonjour!”
Then, selected musicians were added to the mix; creating a very unique flavor; alienating the big band era’s sounds, the french elegance of the 20’s topped with a modern twist. If, as indivuals, all members are very much profilic in their solo careers on NY’s music scene, they’re happy to offer The Apple’s audiences their rendition of a Swingband!
