The Gateswingers played America's favorite 20th Century dance melodies
at the 1999 San Francisco Free Folk Festival. (Pictured are band members
Carol Ginsburg, Ron Klein, Dana Kemp and Bill Slessinger.) The Gateswingers
approach their music with wholehearted enthusiasm and a real love for
the music. They're dedicated to keeping traditional jazz alive, especially
by seeing that young people have the opportunity to both hear and play
this fundamentally joyful music. The Gateswingers will be playing an evening
dance on Saturday night.
