The DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA defuses the seriousness of everyday life, with a humorous twist and an audio-visual world of wicked laughter where everything is allowed. The music represents a grand variety of styles and elements, constantly surprising as well as keeping listeners alert and curious of the orchestra’s next move. This deadly swinging, eight-piece band makes people tap dance all the way into the grave. In MAY the orchestra crosses the ATLANTIC OCEAN to seduce LATIN AMERICA with a tour celebrating the release of the band’s third full-length album «PANDORA’S PIÑATA». After that it is time for Europeans to put on their dancing shoes and lose control.
BARITONE METAL, MARIACHI HOOKS, SWING AND THEN SOME
DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA have become famous and loved for their rule-breaking eclectic musical world. The unique style combined with extra-ordinary musicians with diﬀerent musical backgrounds and skills — from opera singer ANNLOUICE LOEGDLUND'S all-encompassing voice to PONTUS MANTEFORS’ psy-trancy knob-ﬁddling skills — have given the band followers not only from diﬀerent countries but also from diﬀerent musical worlds. The recent additions of trumpet player MARTIN ISAKSSON and trombonist DANIEL HEDIN, have turned the pointy hexagon orchestra into a slightly smoother oiled octagon that steadily sets every blend from baritone metal swish-swosh and mariachi hooks to spaghetti western crescendos on ﬁre. Or as OUTBURN so nicely put it, «DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA could be TIM BURTON’S dream band».
