The Swingtips

The Swingtips

The Swingtips, is a band formed in 1995 from Phoenix, Arizona. Credited as "one of the earlier riders of the swing band revival" and an influential part of the Swing Revival movement in general, the Swingtips was founded by Kregg Barentine, who toured with the Glenn Miller Orchestra in 1993-1994, and by Paul Maranto, a Phoenix dance instructor and guitar player. Originally called "The Wingtips", the band changed its name to the Swingtips and within the first year, co-founder, Paul Maranto, left the band. Barentine's original compositions helped define the era with such notable songs as "Checkbook Daddy-O", "The Business End Of The Barrel", "Let's Play Some Ball", "Santa Swings", "Roswell", and "Sam The Clam", many of which appeared on numerous CD compilations during the late 1990s and well into 2000s.
