ABOUT US

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 encouraging young and old to get up and dance. With a repertoire of over a hundred swing band and big band songs, there’s guaranteed to be something for everyone.

Mr Swing 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.

Booked Mr Swing's Dance Orchestra for a Wedding
5.0   Verified review

If I didn't say it enough to you last Saturday (or to any other member of the swing band I could find!), thank you so much for the amazing set Mr Swing did at our wedding! What a fabulous night! The swing band was something I was really looking forward to and you exceeded all expectations - it was amazing! From start to finish, we loved every second of it and the fact that you were able to play 'Let There Be Love' for our first dance made it even more special and meant a lot to both of us. Every one of our guests came and told us how much they loved the swing band and I'm not sure there was a single song you played when Phil and I weren't up on the dance floor! I've never seen my dad and uncle as animated as when they were singing along to 'Delilah' and even my 87 year old grandma joined the conga line at the end of the night! It was everything that we imagined it would be and more; Mr Swing really did help to make it the best day of our lives. I know I managed to accost most members of the swing band on the night but can you please pass on our most heart-felt thanks to everyone involved - the band was truly fantastic! We've been singing 'Ain't that a kick in the head' all week! I'll email you any pictures that we get through from our photographer. From your most enthusiastic fans.
