In the late 1990s two unexpected musical genres that centered around big bands with horns and retro clothing burst back onto the scene in North America. Third wave ska and retro swing with breakthrough mainstream hits infiltered pop culture from movies and video games to the Gap’s famous khaki swing commercial. Life was good in the 90s and the music reflected it. The fun upbeat sounds of Ska and Swing were the perfect fit for the time. On this episode of History of the 90s host Kathy Kenzora looks back at the rise of 90s ska and swing.
