Prepare to swing as Svetlana & The Delancey Five bring their hot New York style to Glen Echo! It’s a carnival of sound, seamlessly moving from sophisticated tender tones to rowdy foot-stomping music fit for the 21st Century. Fronted by the energetic Svetlana Shmulyan, the band has headlined many sold-out shows in premier venues like the Blue Note, Iridium, and Joe's Pub. They’ve also brought their jubilant music to the masses with their Times Square Swing Flashmobs.
