Originating from Jazz in the early 30s, the swing genre stems from Jazz's experimentation with traditional, contemporary songs.

Artists synonymous with swing include Louis Armstrong, Billie Holliday and Ella Fitzgerald. Swing bands are guaranteed to get your guests up and dancing.

Headliner helps you source and book great soloists, bands and DJs for your wedding, party or corporate event. Find and hire a local Swing or Swing Jazz band for your event.
