Battle of the Bands

Battle of the Bands: Chick Webb vs. Benny Goodman - it was a major success. Yours truly, DJ Dominic Howarth pitted two legendary bandleaders in an epic rematch of their 1938 showdown at the world famous Savoy Ballroom in Harlem, where over 9000 people showed up to witness the outcome.
At our first Swing Summit, on the 24th of June, the votes kept pouring in - song after song. Webb went against Goodman, his pounding drums squaring off against Goodman's frenetic clarinet, going back and forth until, at last, Webb was declared the ultimate winner!
Thank you everyone for braving the heat of that epic first evening and making it a success.
