Balance and Swing, composed of Sue Reading, John Reading and Tina Gugeler have been providing high energy music for the Front Range contra dance scene since 1993. All three were part of the founding members of ContraFusion. From there, they formed the trio to ease rehearsal scheduling and to lower costs allowing them to land more paying gigs. The group proved to be very popular and in 1995 became the regular band for the monthly Zesty Contra dances. BAS has performed at a variety of festivals and dance camps and each individual can be found lurking in other constellations of bands throughout the region, such as Balance The Wave, Delicate Balance, More Delicately Balanced, and The Librarians.
