Grand Marquis’ Bryan Redmond on swing battles, territory bands, and his band’s new album

If jazz, swing dancing, and heated competition strike your fancy, head to Californos‘ Ballroom Sunday evening (6 p.m.) to watch Grand Marquis and David Basse‘s band compete in the battle of the swing bands.

Both bands will compete for four hours, trading 30 minute sets. At the end of the night, the audience will vote to decide the winner. Attendees can enjoy food, drinks, and swing dancing. Go to for tickets ($10 pre-sale, $12 door). All-ages.

We recently spoke with Grand Marquis’ Bryan Redmond (sax, vocals) about the details of the evening, and what the band has in store for later this year.
