Swing Band

Hire a jazz and swing band for your event

Bringing the sounds of the swing era back to life with an electrifying show full of incredible energy and musicianship, Orchestra of Swing have quickly earned themselves a reputation as one of the hardest swinging bands in the UK.

The band have released three albums to acclaim, getting airplay on Clare Teal’s BBC Radio 2 show and are constantly in demand! In 2018 alone, they sold out Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, Hideaway Streatham, Pizza Express Jazz Club Soho, Le Caveau de la Huchette (Paris) and the opening night of The London Jazz Festival.

Recreating classic tunes from the likes of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Glenn Miller, Orchestra of Swing don’t just offer a nostalgia trip, but their own unmistakable style, that breathes life into the best vintage music. Combine that with the band’s top class instrumental solos, sublime vocal performances, and irresistible humour and joie de vivre and you get a show that will leave you feeling uplifted and wanting more.
