The Canal Street Swing Band, hailing from Leeds, West Yorkshire, has been performing together since the balmy summer of 2011. They have demonstrated their musical prowess across the UK, earning acclaim at numerous venues, from raucous bars to highly respected jazz festivals.

The band excels at transporting their audience back to the lively jazz scene of New Orleans in the "roaring 20s." Back then, the music was dynamic and mostly improvised, known for its overlapping melodies and solos that shaped the iconic 'New Orleans' sound. It's this very essence of music that the Canal Street Swing Band aims to bring back in their performances, concentrating on popular tunes from that unmistakable period.

You lot were fantastic, and everyone was raving about the music, so we're really thankful! Christine, Private Event, Leeds

Additionally, they offer services tailored to different event needs, from solo piano or trumpet fanfares for wedding ceremonies to acoustic wandering bands for outdoor drinks receptions, or a background jazz duo/trio for dining events.

Each member of the Canal Street Swing Band is an experienced and skilled performer, promising high-energy and engaging performances regardless of the occasion. The band offer a unique sound and guarantee a swinging good time at any event!
