The RHYTHM SOCIETY is a 15-piece dance band specializing in vintage swing music. Heavily influenced by Count Basie and Harry James, this band covers top venues throughout the Midwest and has been featured on numerous television and radio programs. Crooner Paul King describes his style as "a mixture of Mel Torme, Joe Williams, and Frank Sinatra - with a dash of Cab Calloway thrown in". Detroit's Metro Times jokes “His voice has been banned in some nightclubs for inducing public displays of affection on the dance floor.” The Rhythm Society Orchestra performed at many of the Midwest's largest swing dance events and workshops with some of the world's top instructors. They were recently featured in a Michigan-made independent film, Forever in Time, directed by Chuck Grady. Backed by the solid, horn-heavy sounds of the swingin' Rhythm Society, handsome front man Paul King belts out the tunes in vintage suave style. In an instant, you'll be transported into the dance halls of the '30s and '40s, where a cool-suited cat grabs the hand of the nearest full-skirted honey and the dance-floor crowd parts to watch them take a manic dip and twirl.
