Swift Technique is a blend of James Brown, Led Zeppelin, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Roots. Equipped with a three piece horn section, the group has come together to create something that uniquely represents their hometown of Philadelphia. Most recently, Swift Technique was nominated for Indie Funk / Jazz Band of the Year by the TriState Indie Awards, as well as being featured in JUMP Magazine.
Swift Technique will be appearing for a "green" carpet interview outside Red Square at 6pm on Friday. Swift will also be joining Cold Flavor Repair on Saturday in New Paltz.
"'Swift Technique' (an appropriate name for this group) was one of the tightest, most original acts I'd seen in The District in a long time. With one microphone -- front and center -- the brass players seemed to trade off, each dancing when not soloing or accompanying the others. "The Temptations" would have been proud!"
