ACME Swing Mfg. Co.


You do want to dance, don’t you?   Sax, clarinet, vocals, guitar, thumpin’ bass, drums and how!   The occasional shriek and hysterical scream, from stage or audience, doesn’t matter, it happens.  You move, we groove, it’s what you call symbiotic.

Don’t feel like dancin’?   Come hear us at a ritzy, sit-down venue.  Gaze into your sweetie’s peepers while we provide the  soundtrack.  Ballads, blues, love songs, we’re all about close listening and have been known to make food taste better, folks act friendlier and life get swell.

ACME’s powerhouse lineup includes the voice of Mary Beth Revak, (and sometimes her body’s there too) and Central Virginia’s own stunning Marla Palma, heavenly Haywood Giles on saxophones, Victor “The Wizard” Lee on clarinet,  Jim “The Perfesser” Howe on percussion, Bob “Bluesman” Driver on guitar and C’ville ‘s wildly popular returnee Chris Dammam on upright.    Our good friend Bob Bowen fills in on bass when Chris is unavailable.

Stay tuned to this website as we update it to reflect our spiffiness.  If you want to know more, please contact us today.
