Who are the Kalishnikovs?
The Kalishnikovs are a small big band that specialises in ’30-’40 swing music for Lindy Hop dancers. No matter whether you just started dancing, you are more experienced or even if you are advanced, everybody will have a good time when they start to play.
In 2008 Hein, Ruud and Gijs had a plan. They wanted a big band that wasn’t so big. A small big band, playing dance music. In this day and age, where the stages and bars are not large enough to accommodate a full size big band, the Kalishnikovs were to be a more flexible smaller band, but still bringing the sound, feel and vibrance that should go with
this particular style of music.
