Svetlana and The Delancy 5
Svetlana is "Breakfast at Tiffany's served at the 21st Century Speakeasy" (Allan Young, New York Music Daily), "outstanding vocalist and songwriter" (Will Frieldwald, Wall Street Journal), "making Hot Jazz sound cool!" (BlueMonkMoods).

"Prepare to swing and be moved!" (JazzLives) and "Shine your dancing shoes!" (Time Out NY) as "NYC darlings" (Time Out NY) Svetlana and the Delancey Five transport you to the carnival of sound, seamlessly moving from sophisticated and sultry retrospection to a rowdy joyous "exuberant, foot-stomping party combining swing and pop-singer/songwriter sensibilities"(WPIX11TV) fit for the 21st Century!

Svetlana & The Delancey Five is a collective to New York's veteran jazz musicians lead by a young exciting vocalist, bandleader and arranger, Svetlana Shmulyian. Since forming in 2011, Svetlana and her band have headlined sold out shows in the premier jazz clubs (such as Blue Note, BBKings, Joe's Pub, Regattabar), Jazz Festivals (Blue Note Jazz Festival, Tel Aviv Blues Festival), and Performance Arts Centers across the United States and internationally. The band has gained stellar reviews from Presenters, Audiences, and Press alike by playing exhilarating shows that combine the charm of Svetlana's sultry swinging vocals, with the the excitement and power of a "little big band" and the intoxicating unpredictable improvisational aspects of a small jazz group!

The band has presented a variety of programs, including "Night at the Speakeasy" (based on their critically acclaimed debut album which covers "the repertoire "between 1920 and the Rapture” - All About Jazz), Ella Fitzgerald Centennial Tribute and Ella & Louis Again, Verve Records Tribute Shows (presented to sold out audiences at the Blue Note Festival in 2016 and 2017 at BBKings and Blue Note Jazz Clubs in New York City), Savoy, the Home of Sweet Romance (presented at multiple Swing Dance festivals and Performance Arts Centers in tribute to the dance bands of the Savvoy Ballroom golden years), Swing Makes You Sing (interactive jazz program for young audiences), Holiday Swing (a collection of swinging holiday songs), Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing (a collection of jazz re-imagination of modern standards, from Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Beach Boys - and band's own original material), Swing at the Movies (jazz arrangements of songs from favorite on screen moments - from 1920s to today!) - and many other custom-developed programs featuring Svetlana & The Delancey Five signature "sweet and naughty" (JazzLives), “high-energy stompin' and swingin'', "signature brand of bold, brassy, big band" sound! (Time Out NY)!
