(Apple Valley)–Swing on by the Apple Valley Civic Center Amphitheater June 25 when Phat Cat Swinger launches this year’s Victor Valley Heritage Medical Group Sunset Concert Series with their high-energy music from 6 to 9 p.m.

This 10-piece band has been called one of the best bands to dance to in the Los Angeles and surrounding areas, mixing the classic sounds of Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin with the jumping guitar and brass tunes of the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Phat Cat Swinger has opened for Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, performed shows with Cherry Poppin’ Daddies and The Coasters, and appeared in videos for Christina Aguilera and The Jonas Brothers.
