Band members of Zingology pose with instruments in Wilburland recording studio

Saturday June 22  /  6:00 pm – 7:00 pm


Vintage Swing and Jazz Manouche

What is “zingology”? Well, it’s the study of ZING! The essence of pizzaz. The juice of life, squeezed into a poem. It’s the ineffable feeling of magic you might experience on the dance floor. And it’s a tip of our humble hat to those other famous jazz-ologies, Django Reinhardt’s “Djangology” and Charlie Bird Parker’s “Ornithology.”

Zingology is based in Ithaca, NY and specializes in vintage swing – all those really great tunes from the 1920’s through the 1940’s. The band focuses on the gypsy jazz style and manouche vibe of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of Paris. Regular combo members are Brian Keeler on guitar, Ted Caldwell on stand-up bass, Joanna Green on violin and vocals, Greg Ezra on percussion and Art Godin on guitar. Other folks may join as guests when available, including Wayne Gottlieb, Brian Earle, Jennie Lavine, Harry Aceto, Doug Robinson, Doug Henrie, and Nina Widger.

The band’s newest album On the Boulevard, was released in 2023 and recorded at Electric Wilburland Studio in Newfield, NY.
