Gordon

The Gordon Webster Band

The world’s most sought-after swing musician, Gordon Webster returns to the Diga Diga Doo stage, with a brand new album fresh off the press. Teaming up with Bangkok-based jazz ensemble Dixieology, the inimitable maestro will set our dancefloor alight with a soundtrack of the most toe-tapping tunes imaginable, including hits from the highly anticipated forthcoming record. A piano prodigy since he hit the keys at the age of four, Gordon’s influences range from Fats Waller and Count Basie to Oscar Peterson and Gene Harris. Besides his masterful musicianship, Gordon Webster is an accomplished lindy hopper and his understanding of what dancers need to cut loose puts him in high demand at swing dance events all over the planet. He boasts a list of collaborations with jazz and blues luminaries, and he’ll be joined on our stage this year by the extraordinarily talented vocalist, Charles Turner.
