Six City Stompers

They are the Beatles of Danish Jazz  Lennart Ginman, musician and music director at Copenhagen Jazzhouse.

The lindy hop scene in Copenhagen grew up with Six City Stompers. The two fell in love and fooled around all over town. They could be found together in clubs and in the open streets, dancers and music in perfect harmony. The two took a long break, about 4 years ago, but now they will be re-united. Six City Stompers are ready to play the music Lindy Hoppers can dance to, and Lindy Hoppers are always ready to dance.

The band was formed in 2004 and since then they have toured mostly in Scandinavian countries, but also in other parts of Europe and China. All of the members of the band have a childhood with Louis Armstrongs music in common. Not many young people play classic, traditional and New Orlenas Jazz, and with their love for the genre it was therefore natural for the six boys to form the band Six City Stompers.

In the summer 2006 they won the “European Championship of Traditional Jazz” publics first prize in Paris, with votes counting more than double all the other participating bands alltogether, and won several soloist prizes aswell.

Six City Stompers is the best band I know of. – Hugo Rasmussen, musician
