The Mad Hat Hucksters was founded by swing dancer Morgan Day in 2015. Originally starting out as a jam band that played traditional jazz tunes of the 1920s, the band evolved to find their sound more in the musical style of small combo jazz bands of the swing era.
In the 1930s, records didn’t use the term “swing” to describe the popular music of the era. Often, records were either labeled as for “foxtrot” or “music for dancing”. The title of our debut album is meant to echo that label. When we say “Swing and Jazz Music for Dancing” we mean our album consists of nothing but songs for dancing Lindy Hop, Balboa, and Shag, with solid four rhythms and tempos most dancers expect from good swing dance music.
