Solo Jam music


​Jonathan Doyle came up in Chicago during the neo-swing movement of the mid-90s, playing with the Mighty Blue Kings and then the Four Charms. In 2004, he moved to Austin TX to play traditional jazz, western swing, and any acoustic roots music he could get involved with. He started the Jonathan Doyle Swingtet in Austin at the outset of 2015, focusing on classic swing and originals in a classic style. The band went on to perform Lindy Fest 2015 in Houston, Dirty Water Lindy and Blues Exchange 2015 in Boston, as well as Lindy Focus 2015 in Asheville. Now he's in the Pacific Northwest, and we're thrilled to be hosting his band at Emerald City Solo Jam!
