Full Description
Mr Swing’s Dance Orchestra is a compact 13-piece Rat-pack style big band comprising male vocalist, four brass, five saxes and three rhythm. Founded in 1997 with help from The Prince’s Trust, Mr Swing has become very popular on the corporate, society and wedding circuits. Mr Swing's Dance Orchestra performs classic swing band songs from the radio broadcasts of the thirties, through the Glenn Miller sound of the forties to the Rat-pack days of the fifties and beyond. Well-known big band tunes made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Andy Williams, Tom Jones and Neil Diamond and more recently revived by Harry Connick Jnr, Robbie Williams and Michael Bublé. Mr Swing's Dance Orchestra has played to audiences the length and breadth of the country. Wherever you are in the UK, the swing band encourages young and old to get up and dance. With a repertoire of over a hundred songs, there’s guaranteed to be something for everyone. Dr Jazz is a fun and quirky 6-piece roaring 20s band comprising trumpet/vocals, trombone, clarinet/sax, piano, bass and drums with songs being belted out for through a megaphone for that authentic 1920s sound! With an extensive repertoire of instantly recognisable favourites from the Roaring 20s through the Musicals of the 1930s and beyond, the band entertains all ages with its mix of timeless, songs from Broadway and Hollywood. Serving up classics by the likes of George and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin...with a generous side order of Dixie! The band can be presented in trad waistcoats and bow ties or full white evening dress. This is a very experienced and professional act offering a top class and hassle-free service. They are very versatile and can provide music indoors or outdoors for drinks receptions and/or evening dancing.
