Bairnsdale Secondary College Swing Band

The Bairnsdale Secondary College Swing Band swing band led by Gerry Ciavarella is constantly in demand as it performs at many community functions throughout the year and interstate. The band is excited to be playing at this year's Paynesville Music Festival presenting familiar old classics from the 30’s and of course many classic rock and roll numbers (dancers bring your shoes).

In addition to the Paynesville Music Festival the band looks forward to playing at the Merimbula Jazz Festival on the long weekend in June. The swing band is also participating in the "Generations In Jazz", a weekend festival during May directed by James Morrison in Mount Gambier, South Australia. 3700 secondary students from nearly 100 schools nationwide will compete for the Stage Band Awards. International artists will appear in performance with James Morrison. This will be an amazing experience for the college musicians and one that they will never forget.
