The Swingtime ensemble of the Melbourne Municipal Band also presents free concerts, featuring jazz and Big Band standards. Swingtime’s dances have long been a favorite of local dancers and jazz lovers looking for a reasonably priced, toe-tapping evening. This 22-piece band is directed by Art Martin, a tenor and baritone saxophonist. Art has performed with the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, Dizzy Gillespie, and The Platters, to name just a few.
