Brian Ahearne

Swing dancing changed Brian’s life. He discovered joy, a constructive social life, new friends all over the world, and an enjoyable source of mental and physical wellbeing. Dancing encouraged him to stop smoking, lose five stone (30 kg) of fat, and travel more.
Brian’s appreciation of good jazz music started as a sick child watching old movies on daytime TV. He sees jazz as the birth of popular music and so will swing out to nearly any “CHUUUUNNE!!!”.
For a day job, Brian mostly gets people into the media. He’s even done that a few times for Swing Patrol, such as here http://www.swingpatrol.co.uk/swing-patrol-breaks-guinness-world-record-media-compilation/ and here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHgnHrwak4M. He’s also a trained barrister, has been to university far too many times, is exploring numerous new business ventures and is a total pizza snob.
