“Our Spring Fling Swing Dance was such a hit we are bringing the party back to the Armory for a wonderful social fall evening.” states Sher Stevens, director of the City of Hudson Senior Center.

The Fabulous Versatones are a 5-man swing band based in the Hudson Valley with members from Hudson, Millbrook and Red Hook. Brought together by their love of swinging jazz, they have all played in a variety of bands and in a variety of musical styles. Swingin’ standards and beboppin’ blues make up the Versatones repertoire… favorites include Benny Goodman’s ‘A Smooth One’, Stompin’ At The Savoy’,’Ain’t Got Nothin’ But The Blues’, roadhouse favorite ‘Route 66’ and ‘Pennies From Heaven’ to name just a few of the classic tunes that are a part of every Fabulous performance.

Pete Jung and Ambrose Verdibello on guitars, Pete Tenerowicz, drums; Eric Rosi-Marshall on bass and vocals, Chris Kendall on tenor and soprano sax.
