A crescent moon reclines in languor as a warm Southern wind shimmies through the magnolias. On the outdoor gazebo below, the best-dressed dance band in America belts into the opening stains of 'Hit The Road Jack'. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Golddiggers.

 

Marrying the best of swing to the finest traditional southern strains.

The Golddiggers tag-team bandleaders are practiced veterans of the neo-Swing revival of the 1990's.

The Golddiggers are a dance band in the classic country club tradition. Their repertoire embraces an impressive catalog, marrying the best of Swing to the finest traditional Southern strains. With almost magical precision, the Golddiggers pull from their song-list to mold the form of any event. Start 'Jump Jive & Wail' and the audience find their feet. Be Like You' conjures a raucous & winding conga-line. And with At Last', heads meet shoulders as couples sway slowly into indigo evening.

Jen Jones (the Camaros) & Dave Willie (Nine Parts Devil) honed their talents on stages as far-flung as The Brown Derby in Los Angeles, New Yorks Ed Sullivan Theater & Disney's Epcot Center. Through tight melody & sharp banter, the dynamic boy-girl duo's interactivity invokes the playfulness of Prima & Keely and the musicality of Ella & Armstrong. The Golddiggers band are a revolving composite of the finest musicians in Nashville. Golddigger musicians have supported performers as diverse as Robert Plant, Asleep At the Wheel, Peggy Lee, Lucinda Williams, Frank Black & the Catholics, Bootsy Collins, Dale Watson and on and on and on.

From Prima to Patsy. From Elvis to Ella. The Golddiggers look and sound spin a magical web suggesting the elegance of the past, while maintaining an energy & humor, which make them accessible to the youngest members of any audience.
