Don Pucci is the founder and artistic director of Nighthawks and The Uptown Swing Dance Company. He is a widely respected DJ, dance teacher and events organiser within the international swing dance and vintage community.

As a DJ, he is a firm favourite for many. An avid collector of 78rpm records and specialist in swing, jazz and blues from the 30s and 40s, he seeks out the finest lesser known tunes and gives them life, continually building a collection of interesting and infinitely danceable music. A highly sought after DJ for many events across the UK and Europe, such as the Summer Jamboree, Friskin’ The Whiskers, Herrang, and numerous music festivals, Don Pucci keeps the dancefloor filled and frolicking.
