SwingLine began as a project organized by Darren Blundell and Urmas Soomet. The original concept was to invite some accomplished musicians to come out to a "Little Big Band Session" at Studio 13 in Millgrove, Ontario about once a month to play some music.
The musicians of this band were originally brought together purely for the love of music with no ongoing commitment to "join the band", it was simply an opportunity to play together and develop new musical connections with other musicians from the greater Hamilton/Toronto area. It was through these ties that Shari Vandermolen’s rich vocals were brought to the group filling that niche to complete the band.
Over time musical ties grew stronger with a desire for the group to rehearse regularly and thus the band SwingLine was born - an inspired band playing big band standards with some soulful R&B to round things off.
The band is currently available for gigs in southwestern Ontario.
