West Coast Swing Music (May 2014)

Posted by Obi Simpson, Springfield Mo on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 Under: Dance music
It is no secret that one of our favorite social dances here at Take The Lead is West Coast Swing.  This particular dance is most interesting when paired with awesome music.  So, here are a few of my favorite songs that have been making their way into our dance classes and dance parties.

"On The Rocks" - Grieves

Everything from the slow build in the beginning, the vocals, and the hard hitting beat, this song is just dripping with cool.  In fact, it even leaves a residue of awesome around the the speaker system every time the song is played.  
Clocking in at around 90 beats per minute, On The Rocks has a slower groove to it that is perfect for strutting your stuff on the dance floor.

"Showstopper" - Brandon & Leah

A little faster than the last song, Showstopper is in that ideal range that doesn't feel too fast or too slow for any level on the dance floor.  The song is full of little nuances that make this song a treat to dance to every time it is played.  It has all sorts of fun things to hit in the music that takes more than one dance to fully appreciate.  Even if it gets a little crazy at the end, Showstopper is sure to bring a smile to practically any West Coast Swing dancer.  

"Feisty" - Jhameel

Another slower one, this time channeling the spirit of Michael Jackson.  Although the song doesn't specifically call for moon walking, Feisty has cool distortion effects that practically demand you don a single white glove and move like you are the king of pop.  Delivering progressively changing tracks with a variety of distortions, this is a song that deserves to played at any West Coast Swing dance.

Thanks for reading!
