The 12th Street Swingers have a vast repertoire of songs and are available in a range of line-ups, making them a good choice for all manner of events. They can provide anything from classy background music during a dinner party, to a full trad jazz band with vocals for an evening of energetic dancing.

Their basic line-up is a trio featuring trumpet or clarinet with banjo and sousaphone (tuba), which is ideal for informal strolling and background music.

The 12th Street Swingers were exceptionally professional. On the night they went down a storm, I can't recommend them highly enough! Rachel, Birthday party at Tewin Bury Farm in Hertfordshire

For a different feel, the banjo and tuba can be swapped for guitar and double bass, which gives a more mainstream swing sound - taking in some rhythm and blues along the way. For a bigger impact, and great music for dancing, we recommend either the five- or six-piece line-ups, with added drums.

The 12th Street Swingers have a client list that includes Westfield Shopping Centre, Marks and Spencer and venues such as Buckingham Palace, Royal Ascot and Tower Bridge, and its members have played all over Europe at jazz festivals, major film premieres, and the Chelsea Flower Show.

Add to that countless birthday parties, bar mitzvahs, funerals, river boat trips and New Year parties! Whatever the requirements for your event, chances are that The Swingers can cater for it!
