King James and the Serfs of Swing

King James and the Serfs of Swing

is a band that I’ve been leading ever since I decided that I wanted to be King, sometime in the 1990s. The band exists as group of professionals that comes together when the time is right and for about 25 years as a student group at the George Washington University until the music program was cut in the Spring of 2015. Below are a few movies of the ‘Pro’ version and then a various movies and MP3s from student groups of years past.

From the Pro version

                                                               

It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing),                     Pete’s Rhythm,

with vocalist extraodinaire, Sharon Clark.
