The Classic Swing Orchestra

13-piece swing band performing timeless classics guaranteed to get everyone on their feet!

Price From
£1,500.00

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, it has become very popular on the corporate, society and wedding circuits.

This great band performs classic swing 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.

These guys have played to audiences the length and breadth of the country encouraging young and old to get up and dance. With a repertoire of over a hundred timeless favourites, there’s guaranteed to be something for everyone.

This band is very versatile. It can perform a mix of styles for a party crowd including audience participation and sing-alongs; strict-tempo sets for a ballroom dance or theme its repertoire for a wartime event.

It is equally at home playing in small venues to audiences of fifty as it is performing to crowds of a thousand and always adjusts its performance area and volume to suit the occasion.
As well as performing at countless weddings, the band has entertained for BMW, The Air Crew Association, Leeds United FC, Elior and ITE Moda amongst others and was very proud to play at Buckingham Palace for The Prince’s Trust Royal Charter Award ceremony.

The members of the band take great pride in their professionalism and enjoy themselves at every event.
