The Syncopators are a jazz band dedicated to the popular music of the 1920's, 1930's and early 1940's. Founded in 2007 by band leader Glenn Crytzer, the group has become a favorite among dancers and jazz enthusiasts in the Seattle area.
Influenced by greats like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sidney Bechet, Benny Goodman, Fats Waller and many more, the Syncopators inspire dancers and excite listeners with driving rhythms, heart-wrenching blues, and hot solos.
The group has perfomed at all of Seattle's major venues as well as the Seattle Lindy Exchange, the Killer Diller Ball, Camp Jitterbug, Savoy Swing Jam, Century Masters' Weekend and the Emerald City Blues Festival.
Freddie is always hot and anxious to play savage rhythms until all the cats join in. Spreadin' rhythm around wherever he plays, Freddie will make you shake the blues away. He has brought lindy hoppers delight at every tub from Seattle to Herrang, at events large and small. He has organized and won Seattle DJ battles, and has played all the local Seattle dance floors. He's so very diga diga doo by nature, and has been known to let it get sweet and hot until your sister Kate shouts "Ochi!" four or five times. If he could be with you just one hour at night, he's sure to be tappin' the commodore till you go viper mad!

He has Dj'd at ULX for the past 3 years, at Harlem Nights the past 2 years,Utah Lindy Hop Jam Session and is a regular DJ at the Downtown Stomp.
