The music


We care a lot about music, especially live music. Let us tell you about the bands and DJs that will play during OLX. We have booked the best musicans in town for our event.

Jazzombies is pianist David Skinner’s swing esemble. They’ve been playing for swing dancers, as well as jazz clubs and festivals, since 2012. The band plays classic jazztunes , by for example Benny Goodman, Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole and George Gershwin, as well as originals by Davis Skinner. Jazzombies prides itself on great tunes, interplay, dancer-friendly rhythmic variation and huge reserves of swinging energy!

Shoeshine Boys had their first concert at the New Orleans Jazzclub Workshop in 2008. Since then they have established themselves in Oslo’s traditional jazz environment playing New Orleans-based traditional jazz, dixieland, swingjazz, rhythm and blues. Shoeshine Boys have become a big favourite among the swing dancers in town with their high energy and enjoyment on stage!

Birkelunden Big Band consists of 19 musicians between the age of 20-35 years old. They play jazzy tunes by for example Glenn Miller, The Andrews Sisters and Tommy Dorsey. They are also playing the traditional jazz routines like Shim sham, Tranky doo and Big apple – so make sure to join us at the dance floor for these dance routines!
