NAOMI & HER HANDSOME DEVILS
Naomi Uyama was an international swing dance champion searching for the perfect band - original but authentic - in the pocket but bringing the party. After searching the world over she took it upon herself to form "Naomi & Her Handsome Devils" from her favorite musicians in New Orleans, NYC, Seattle, and Chicago. Put them all together and you have a modern band with a vintage sound that is swinging dance floors around the world.

Peter has always loved dancing to Soul music. What started with house parties in the late 90's, then moved on to the legendary back room at Houston's Lindyfest eventually grew into an entire event dedicated to swing dancing to Soul music, Swing & Soul.
