Fun Note: The Wabasha Street Caves are the only remaining restored Gangster Era site in Saint Paul. They offer historic tours of extensive caves carved into the hillside in long abandoned mining ventures in 1800's. Later, the caves were used as a mushroom farm, and then developed as a Restaurant Casino and Gangsters' Hotspot during the 1930's prohibition era. Newspapers reported an unsolved gangland murder at the casino. Tour guides point out the bullet holes. Some believe the caves are haunted by the murdered mobsters whose bodies were never found... Check out this fascinating spot! It's more than Thursday Night Swing Dancing! https://www.wabashacaves.com/

Westwind Swing Band is a traditional 18 piece big band with lead vocalist Robyn Chargo. Our songbook includes tunes by iconic band leaders such as Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Artie Shaw and more. Our mission is to preserve and perform classic Swing Era and similarly styled music, as recorded by the original artists. 

We are available for your listening and dancing pleasure! We perform at a variety of venues from wineries, swing dances, weddings and other private events to city parks and senior centers. You can hear us play regularly at the Wabasha Street Caves Swing Dancing Night from 7 - 10 PM on the first Thursday of every month. 

Typical venues that work well for us are ballrooms, banquet and concert halls, city park band shells, community centers, party rooms, wineries, breweries, retirement communities, and senior residences. 

We are becoming a Twin Cities wedding band of note with several recent bookings and we are already booking into next year! Call now to check availability and reserve your date!
