Knights of Swing the movie Log Line:

Set in 1947, Knights of Swing is a feature film that chronicles a group of young jazz musicians whose dream is to form a “really swingin’ Big Band”. Unfortunately, things prove much more complicated when the community objects to the diversity of the band. Alliances form, and lines are drawn. What follows is soul searching, uplifting, and through music, our story illuminates forgiveness, healing and unconditional love.

What they are saying:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Knights of Swing is a joyful and exuberant yet poignant and socially conscious look at America's post WWII years. Driven by fantastic performances and a killer original slate of classic-styled big band songs, it’s a true labor of love that captures the spirit of a unique era of American history while celebrating one of its greatest musical art forms." -

Jonathan Widran - JW Vibe.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Wow!!! What an accomplishment -- Loved the music, the songs, the story and message.
Loved the kids in the band-- couldn't have been better.
It had a sweetness that was intoxicating. Just Loved it!!!"

Mark Winkler - platinum award winning Jazz Vocalist/Lyricist/Producer

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"A great film is one thing. A cool soundtrack is another. Put the two together and you have a fantastic combination.
Knights of Swing, watch it now and revel in its story and fall in love with its music…you will find plenty here to brighten your day…your week…your year."

Dave Franklin - The Big Take-Over
