Kevin Rush - guitar
Andres Bautista - drums

Ten Cat Swing is a Chicago-based acoustic quartet, bringing a fresh twist to the jazz standards everyone loves. Our music captures the essence of gypsy jazz and beyond, offering the perfect blend of timeless melodies and innovative arrangements. Whether you’re a jazz aficionado or someone new to the genre, our tunes are engaging, easy to listen to, and will make you want to dance, swoon, or croon along with us! Ten Cat Swing performs at a variety of venues and events, from intimate gatherings to grand celebrations, bringing jazz to life wherever we play, and delivering an unforgettable musical experience that is truly “the cat's meow”!

Anthony D’Agostino is a bassist and educator who can be found performing in a wide variety of settings throughout the Chicago area and beyond. Originally from Wisconsin, he trained in jazz and classical bass both at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and DePaul University, studying with bassists John Babbitt, Rob Kassinger, and Dennis Carroll. Currently he enjoys a varied performance schedule playing in venues across the city and surrounding suburbs with a number of different groups. 
Amy Bishop-vocals. Amy Bishop is a charismatic singer with a versatile voice, performing with several Chicago-area bands, including Ten Cat Swing, Altered Suburbia, The Vintage Swing Band, and Afternoon Logic. Amy's love of music found its first stage in performances from a very early age, singing in choirs and taking inspiration from icons such as Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand, and Whitney Houston. With a minor in vocal music from the University of Illinois paired with practical experience from musical opportunities throughout her life, Amy has learned to seamlessly blend vintage charm with contemporary flair. Her favorite quote, “The only thing better than singing is more singing,” by Ella Fitzgerald, reflects her passion and dedication to her craft.

Kevin Rush -guitar, Kevin Rush began playing guitar at the age of 13. Influenced greatly by rock and roll greats, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix, he quickly became aware of other styles: classical with Andres Segovia, blues via 3 Kings, and ultimately jazz with Django Reinhardt and Les Paul. 

Andres Bautista -drums. Andy is a world class drummer and percussionist from the Ravenswood area of Chicago. He is an extremely expressive and melodic percussionist, and he excels in both a backing and a lead role.
