swing band

Swing (band)

Swing is a Canadian néo-trad band of Franco-Ontarian origins. The two main members of Swing are Michel Bénac and Jean-Philippe Goulet.


Contrarily to what the name could seem to suggest, its sound is not inspired by swing music, only Quebecois folklore, which is adapted with techno music. The name comes from the Quebec French term Swinger, meaning in this context to dance, and the phrase Swinge la bacaisse dans le fond d'la boîte à bois!, a classic, almost cliché expression used in Quebec folk music parties.
