Swing-Era DJ



“Anything that you can tap your foot to is good music.” -Louis Armstrong. If you see Shorty tapping his foot, you can bet he’s gonna make you smile & dance. If you see him dancing at the DJ Booth, you can bet he’s bringing the crowd with him to newer heights. If you see him imitating Cab Calloway’s head-banging, watch out!

Loving Lindy Hop, Balboa, & Blues since November 2004, international DJ Shorty George plays to get people dancing — hot & slow or hot & fast — jockeying tunes produced by artists from all over the world, dead or alive.

Find out why international instructors — Jamin Jackson, Cat Foley, Joris & Elze — give high regards for his DJing talent, on YouTube (click to watch). For more info, see www.shortygeorge.com.


What Dancers Had To Say About Shorty George…


Shorty George travels for dance – 1 year in Australia, 1 year in Holland, 3 months in Iceland, now in Turkey since 2010. Living like a gypsy, he toured Europe in 2009 for 11 weeks, part of it dancing in the streets alongside a gypsy folk jazz band – the Cangelosi Cards. Interesting tidbit, Shorty George DJed trans-continentally a social dance in Amsterdam through his webcam & PC in New York and most recently from Istanbul to Barcelona in May 2012.
