Known for a progressively rhythmic style as rooted in James Brown funk as in more traditional blues, Swifty incorporates elements of pop, metal, rhythm and blues. Formed in early 1999, Swifty is a force to be reckoned with on the dancefloor, often referred to as “The Swiftest In The Business.” Currently touring North America and Canada, be sure to catch Swifty Soundsystem when they pass through your local music venue.
