The Line Up
Akron Rolling Thunder Vet Fest 2019!


The Swizzle Stick Band is an 8 piece Motown/Funk/R&B band, playing your favorites from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s with some new popular songs mixed in. Our singer, Ms. Vanda Johnson, has a beautiful voice and powerful stage presence, which does justice to the great music we play.

The Swizzle Stick Band is a high-energy, dance party band, so be sure to bring your dancing shoes!



In Memory of our Friend and Bandmate Mike Chopka.

Mike played his last gig on Earth with us on January 20, 2007 and joined the band in the heavens in August, 2007. His backup percussion sounds and always cheerful  - no matter what! - spirit is missed by us all.

In Memory of our friend "Chef Tray".
Tray was always helping others and was the "Chef Extraordinaire" at The Getaway. He loved the bands that went there to play and always sang "Johnny B. Goode" with us every time we played there. Tray, say hello to Mike up there and make some great music together up there until we join you. RIP
