Nobody seems to know. I can tell you that an Australian band by the name of JW Swing Orchestra has now transcribed the track at the request of Crazy Rhythm Review (our Lindy Hop troupe) and played it for the first time on August the 7th! It was fantastic to hear live, and bandleader John Wanner is p...

Lawrence, I thought Jeff Healey was pretty popular? I mean, he's well known to me living in Australia -- certainly better known to the average person in the street here, I'd say, than BBVD or SNZ. That could just be a weird Australian perspective though. I have nothing but respect for Jeff personall...

That's cool Marcelo. Thanks. I looked at the Powerwave too but decided I couldn't justify it just yet, but I like hearing that Griffin makes quality stuff. Still waiting on my order... maybe today.

DJ 1800

Hi all, I've finally decided to fork out for a "proper" laptop DJ setup including a Griffin iMic and DJ1800 software. I'm yet to test the setup but everything I've seen so far makes me think this will improve my DJing experience, by adding song previewing and cuing to the song management s...

DjStarr, it was great to see & dance with you, and to hear your stuff. I appreciate the feedback on my music too. I can't believe how vocal the crowd in Herrang is about their music... I must have had a couple of dozen come up to me during my sets saying they liked stuff. Chester climbed up into...

Bryan -- it depends which airport you fly into from London. Most people fly into Arlanda, which is not really in Stockholm and not really near Herrang (over an hour's drive from each). If flying into Arlanda, you can expect to be able to book a ride from the airport into Herrang. Visit the Limousine...
