SWING BIG BIO

SwingBig is a duo that features Dave Borowski on vocals and guitar, and Zeke Hutchison on mandolin. Their music relies heavily on influences drawn from jazz, swing, Western swing, blues, bluegrass, and music from the British Isles.

Dave Borowski has performed in public since 1972. In addition to studio and freelance work, he has been a member of Athens-based bands Close Enough for Jazz, Aces and Eights, the Kings of Hollywood, Deltoid, Common Ground, the Billycats, Zeke’s Fancy, and the Wingnuts. He also currently plays with J.D. Hutchison and Realbilly Jive.

Zeke Hutchison grew up around music, his father and uncle being the core of the nationally-known Hutchison Brothers. Zeke took to the mandolin at an early age. He recently recorded with (Grammy-award-winning artist) Tim O’Brien on his Short Order Sessions. O’Brien writes of Zeke as “one of the best unsung mandolin players in the world.”

Together, SwingBig performs jazz standards from the American Songbook, swing songs from the Django Reinhardt-Charlie Christian Era, country and western swing from the likes of Bob Wills, and just about anything else that might catch their ears.

For a good time, come hear ’em.

RIP J.D. Hutchison 11/02/2021

Words can’t describe the loss of J.D. Hutchison. He has influenced both of our lives in so many ways. Zeke lost his uncle (the Funcle, we called him), with whom he shared years and years of great times, musical and otherwise. Dave was the bassist in JD’s band, Realbilly Jive, for its entire run. However, this description only scratches the surface…

He left us the same way he lived his life…on his own terms. Many of the people he’d known throughout his life had the chance to tell him how much he meant to them, and they got to say their goodbyes. That’s a good thing. 

Many, many people have posted photos, videos, recordings, and memories on social media. The number is astounding, and speaks to the love people will always feel for JD, and the length and breadth of the mark he made on so many lives. 

Rest In Peace, J.D. Hutchison
