Black Swan may have came home in fourth place at this years competition, but took the entire event hostage at the late night showcase. Dancing our world famous Number 2  the team put everything in to an all or nothing performance and left the entire room stunned. The team will be remembered as the moral victors after this genre defining performance and this has laid down a statement of intent for the coming months.

What more could the team ask for but that. . .

Welcome to our DERT destroying Muso’s

Black Swan unfortunately have to announce that Matt Crum has finally hung up his melodeon after 3 consecutive victory’s at the Dancing England Rapper Tournament! Following in the footsteps of Rog Peppe, Matt had helped Black Swan keep hold of the Musicians trophy at DERT for the last 4 years!! He has decided to give the other musicians a chance and will this year be dancing with the team!

His tiny shoes will now be filled by the magnificent Laura Barber and Dave Boston of Blackbeard’s Tea Party fame! Laura’s driving fiddle aided by Dave’s dynamic rhythm will power the team to the top of DERT 2012 (hopefully) and help the team retain the Musicians trophy for a 5th year!


No news is good news. . .
