More about Din & Tonics, as described in the announcement: the group is world famous for its impeccable musicality, snappy choreography and hilarious antics.
From Boston to Bangkok, it has delighted sold out crowds around the world. It has just completed its biannual 10-week, multicountry, world tour this past summer and performed at the White House, embassies, and world-class hotels, as well as for major motion pictures, professional sport organizations and public figures like Caroline Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Andy Garcia, Sharon Stone, and YoYo Ma.
While the Dins’ repertoire centers on the “Great American Songbook,” in particular American jazz standards of the 1920s through 1940s, it also includes selections from other genres such as rock ‘n’ roll, disco, and folk. To learn more, visit http://www.dins.com.
