About

The RHYTHM SOCIETY is a 15-piece dance band specializing in true vintage swing music. Specializing in the music of the Great American Songbook as it was played by the famous bands of the swing era: Glenn Miller, Harry James, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Woody Herman, Billy May and Nelson Riddle. Based in Detroit, this band covers top venues throughout the Midwest and has been featured on numerous television and radio programs.

Paul King, crooner for the band describes his style as "a mixture of Mel Torme, Joe Williams, and Frank Sinatra - with a dash of Cab Calloway thrown in", belts out the tunes in vintage suave style. In an instant, you'll be transported into the dance halls of the '30s and '40s.

The Rhythm Society Orchestra has been featured at many of the Midwest's largest swing dance events including dance workshops with some of the world's top instructors.

The Rhythm Society was featured in a 2007 Michigan-made independent film, Forever in Time, directed by Chuck Grady.
