DOWNTOWN SWING BAND
The Downtown Swing Band is Hilo’s premier vintage dance-band, performing the hits of Tin Pan Alley and Broadway that have inspired dancers for decades. The band members are Hal Glatzer on guitar and vocals, Jerry Broughton on violin and vocals, Richard Lee on saxophones and flute, and Leonard Kubo on bass. The Downtown Swing Band has played the after-hours dance parties for Hilo’s Black & White Nights, and is a particular favorite of the Hilo Hep Cats – the local jitterbug dancers.
