ABOUT ME

Simon ‘Mr Kicks’ Selmon is one of the UKs most popular & experienced vintage dance DJs on the circuit today. He specialises in swing dance entertainment and music for themed events from 20s Gatsby parties, 40s Swing dance nights to 50s Grease parties. With a huge collection of great vintage music including many original 78s digitalised for modern DJing and some modern Swing and electro Swing sounds for a younger audience, Simon (the UK’s No 1 Jitterbug) has a lot of experience in filling dance floors and keeping the atmosphere buzzing at a wide range of events from festivals, corporate & private parties, to weddings, including his own vintage events through Swingdance UK, such as 20-year running Stompin’ at the 100 Club, Swing Out at London Wonderground, and monthly parties Swing Time & Some Like It Swing at the Genesis Cinema.

Katya Maddison

Simon's knowledge of swing music and its history is impressive and, boy, can he dance! He's dealt with our group with great professionalism and flexibility and I thoroughly recommend him. He's been happy to share his connections in the music industry too, which has been hugely useful, and responds well to the preferences of his clients.
