Postmodern Swing Club are an exceptionally talented and very flexible band, who can perform music from the classic era of jazz to current pop hits... all cunningly put into vintage style.

Available as a 5 to 9 piece band, Postmodern Swing Club are formed from top class musicians who exude sophistication and energy!

Absolutely incredible and really made the party. The Atmosphere was fantastic! Amy, Wedding, West Sussex, August 2017

Having re-arranged lots of music from internet sensation, Postmodern Jukebox, this fabulous band have also created many of their own stomping swing twists on pop tunes from the 70s, 80s and 90s up to the present day!

The Postmodern Swing Club have a huge repertoire and can tailor any performance to an individual clients needs.

They have a large selection of laid back tunes when something more low key is required, as well as their hip up-beat swing tunes that will make you want to put on your spats and tassels and learn to Charleston like it’s 1929.

These outstanding musicians can tailor their performances to the exact needs of any client, performing in a specific style, or creating a varied programme of music through an evening.

If you want all the sophistication of swing music at your event, but want everybody to get down and boogie afterwards, the band can also perform a soul/funk set later in the evening (see repertoire).

Their charismatic singers deliver superb performances from mellow jazz through to the most energetic and soulful funk. You can choose to have either male or female singers performing for you or even better... have both!

They also feature the funkiest horn section imaginable who will add a massive wow factor to any event.

Postmodern Swing Club feature a flexible line up, normally performing as a 5 piece, but with additional members up to a full 9 piece band. They come with a male singer as standard but you can request one of their female singers as lead vocalist instead.

DJ music or background music can be played in between their sets, with the option to link your own ipod to their system and put your own playlist on.

The band use the highest quality 2000W PA system (with sub) plus lighting rig, but also have smaller set ups for more intimate venues.

“Thank you all so much for helping making the evening at our wedding go so well. You were such a great band and we had numerous friends and family comment on the day and afterwards complementing you guys. We loved our first dance and so did so many of our guests. It worked perfectly and thanks for being flexible with that. The venue milbridge court said that you guys were the best band they'd had!!! It was great to see everyone dancing right to the end. Thanks so much.”

Mr & Mrs Ashley, Wedding at Milbridge Court, June 2019

“Just a quick note to say thank you again for last night’s performance – it was amazing. I loved the way you played to the crowd and sensed what got them up dancing. Everyone said how amazing you all were and I will be recommending Postmodern Swing Club to all!!”

Becky, Private Event, July 2018

“Great gig, we just wanted to give a huge thank you to the band for Saturday night. You were fantastic, everybody we spoke to waxed lyrical about how wonderful you were.”

Pete & Sue, Private Event, June 2018

“Can I just say a huge thank you to you all for making our office party such an amazing night. Everyone has commented today on what an entertaining evening it was and how amazing the band were. Once again thank you.”

Denise, Corporate Event, January 2018

“From our initial introduction the band could not have been more professional. Their planning was meticulous - agreeing arrival and set-up arrangements to accommodate our very specific requirements and suggesting song-by-song playlists for each set - to take our guests from post dinner Swing, to Soul & Pop for the New Year celebrations. The start time went a little awry on the night, which must have been frustrating for the band, but they weren’t fazed in any way and adapted seamlessly with a re-jig of the set structures – our guests of course noticed nothing untoward – and they quickly had the dance floor heaving. The lead singer was amazing, with a fantastic range that particularly did the classic swing numbers proud – and also looking fabulous in a shimmering evening gown (the guys were dressed perfectly for the occasion too!). We would recommend Postmodern Swing Club to anyone – you will not be disappointed.”

Jane & Steve, Wedding, December 2017
