Swing Band

Hire an exceptional live swing and soul band

Recently described by Deborah Meaden (BBC’s Dragons’ Den) as “exceptional,” Swing and Soul are a sensational 6 to 18-piece function band, with a reputation as one of the most flexible party bands in the UK. You can expect the evening to start with up-tempo jive and swing numbers, to get guests of all ages on the dance floor, followed by pop, Motown and soul music, to keep it filled all night!

Swing and Soul have been performing up and down the country for 15 years and are one of the most in-demand function bands in the UK today. Previous clients include Ferrari, BMW, Sony, Bentley, Triumph, Virgin, Lindt and E-On and previous venues include Claridge’s Hotel, Pinewood Studios, The Shard, Wembley Stadium and the Natural History Museum. The band have also performed in Paris at the Eiffel Tower and as far afield as Amman, Jordan and Marrakesh.

The band play a huge range of music from the swing, soul and Motown eras, with a set list that is carefully planned to appeal to wide-ranging audiences. Alongside authentic covers of some of the best music of the 20th Century, the band can perform their own vintage re-workings of modern songs in the style of Postmodern Jukebox, so if you fancy hearing Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love” as a 1920s Charleston, this is the band for you! 

Swing and Soul are also able to provide musical entertainment for other parts of your event, such as classical music for your wedding ceremony and background jazz for the drinks reception. With a wealth of experience performing at hundreds of events and venues throughout the country, Swing and Soul have all the ingredients to make your event a success.
