Will Wentworth and I attended Swing Central on February 24th, 2017. It is a concert held at the Champaign Country Club featuring 6 local jazz bands. The bands that performed were Edison’s Jazz Band 2 and 1, Urbana High Jazz Band, Central Lab Band, Central Stage Band, and Central Jazz Ensemble. We had a great time and so did the students that we interviewed. In this video we highlight the reasons why students love Swing Central.
