Idaho State Museum Ensemble Music Series: Kings of Swing

The Kings of Swing was formed in 1974 with the best musicians in the valley Gib Hochstrasser, the founder and arranger, faithfully arranged and orchestrated all the music in the Kings’ library and carefully re-created the exact of arrangements of the music of the big bands. Nearly every great jazz musician to come through this valley has played with the Kings. The Kings of Swing is the signature big band of the Sun Valley Jazz Festival, opening the Festival 21 years ago. They have been featured at Sun Valley every year since with sold out crowds. The mission of the Kings of Swing is to preserve the sound, the style, and the feel of the music of the Big Band Era and feature the great musicians of our region.
