Midnight Swing are the definitive jazz trio. With incredible talent and musicianship, and extensive performance experience including at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and Cheltenham Jazz Festival, they provide unrivalled quality and superior performances of classic jazz numbers. The band also offer jazz arrangements of more popular music, and can tailor sets to your requirements.

The band delivers breathtaking renditions of timeless, swinging jazz classics from the likes of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, George Gershwin and more.

They were sensitive to the audience, adjusting the volume so that we were able to chat whilst eating and later they upped the tempo to provide a great atmosphere! Terry, Corporate, Dulwich

Midnight Swing have played for countless golf captains' dinners, weddings, corporate receptions, anniversaries, gala dinners, charity balls at venues such as The Dorchester Hotel, RAC Club Pall Mall, HMS President, Park Plaza Riverbank and Marriott Hotel Park Lane.

For evening events where dancing is a must, we recommend booking the band's larger line-up incorporating drums, vocals and trumpet.

If you like the mellow, jazzy sounds of Midnight Swing but would prefer to hear more pop songs, please check out their sister band, Midnight Blue!

Please expect an increase on the guide fees for quotes for Friday and Saturday events due to strong demand.

Book with confidence! After events, we ask our clients what they thought of our acts. We publish what they say here, so you can read genuine, unbiased feedback before booking.

“What can I say that hasn't been said already, what a fantastic band Midnight Swing are! Thank you so much for playing beautifully and making our wedding day so special. We would definitely recommend Midnight Swing to anyone looking for a wedding band and have done so already!!!”

Katherine & Nico, Wedding in London, July 2019

“Very friendly and professional, played a great selection of jazz to a very high standard. Really added to the wedding.”

Catherine, Wedding, The Clock Barn in Hampshire, July 2018

“Very satisfied. The music was very enjoyable and just what we were looking for. The musicians were very polite and we received very good feedback from our guests.”

Martina, Corporate Event in London, June 2018

“Thank you for organising the band for the Golf Captains' Swan Song last Saturday. We found Midnight Swing very professional. They were well dressed, arrived on time and setup without any fuss. They were sensitive to the audience, adjusting the volume so that we were able to chat whilst eating and later they upped the tempo to provide a great atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed the music and they helped make the evening a success.”

Terry, Other Event in Dulwich, April 2018

“They were great! They played beautifully and everyone loved them. I wanted to apologise for us being a little disorganised with the plan of the party, we changed the location a little and that was our fault, and we did not have time to warn them! But they really were easy to work with and were very professional.”

Stephanie, Wedding in Somerset, March 2018

“Great band, everyone loved them and the guys fitted around our needs brilliantly. Function Central made everything super easy too!”

Rupert, Wedding at The Town Hall Hotel in London, December 2017

“They turned up and set up with plenty of time to spare. They played music at the right level so guests could still chat comfortably without shouting. They were all well dressed and very friendly. I understand one of my colleagues has already booked them for two other functions!”

Katie, Corporate Event in London, November 2017

“The band were brilliant. Really accommodating, and perfect for our event. We will definitely use them again!”

Miranda, IMMFA annual Dinner at Skinners Hall, London, July 2017

“Guys, just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at the drinks reception for my wedding at Botleys on Sunday. I could listen to you play all day! I heard lots of the tracks I had requested, each played exquisitely in your awesome style. We had loads of complements for the song selection and your performance and couldn't be happier. After having to cancel our engagement celebration that we had originally booked you for a couple of years ago, I'm really pleased that you were available to play at my wedding. If you ever release any albums, or play at any public concerts, I want to be the first to know!”

Mehmet, Wedding in Surrey, September 2016

“We were very happy with the music the band has played! We had their performance during the dinner and everyone has commented on how wonderful it was to have such lovely jazz music on the background.”

Karina, Wedding in Burnham-on-Crouch, July 2016

“Very satisfied, professional friendly group, sensitive to client group, excellent musicians.”

Penny, Private Party in London, 2016

“Thank you again for the fantastic gig/sets/performance at our wedding. It was perfect for us - everyone was saying how good you were (just sorry you were stuck downstairs in the heat whilst we were all sunning ourselves upstairs!)”

James & Natalie, Wedding, Thames Boat, June 2015
