All swingin' dancin', 1920s-40s orchestra!
The Silver Ghosts are a 7 piece swing ensemble performing numbers that evoke the hot, breathless and high spirited dance gigs of the 1920s, 30s & 40s.
Why choose us?
The swing orchestra, whose upbeat performances have previously effected exhilarating 'Boardwalk Empire/Gatsby' style atmospheres at Ronnie Scott's, The Savoy, The 100 Club, and The Royal Albert Hall, offer you the opportunity to put on their upbeat experience at your own event.
The Lineup can pare down to a 5 piece or scale up to an 9 piece to suit your requirements and budget. It is the septet that is the usual killer lineup, raising smiles with an authentic sound and quirky numbers like 'Busy Line', 'You're Driving Me Crazy' and 'Ukulele Lady', as well as popular standards.
The performers are always presented in smart/glamorous atire, an important part of the performance's jazz age evocation.
There's nothing like period partner dancing to really bring the music alive, and some of The jazz age revivalists often swing out as part of their performance with Charleston and Lindy Hop swing dancing.
The swing orchestra has Public Liability insurance in place, as required by some venues.
