In August 2012 he sang at the celebrity wedding of Marvin Humes (JLS) and Rochelle Wiseman (The Saturdays), which was covered by Hello magazine. In 2014, he was a finalist in Britains Got Talent on ITV, performing with the group Jack Pack.

The Swing King can also perform with his 6-piece swing band (bass, drums, piano, sax, trumpet, guitar), made up of some of the UK’s very best musicians, and have worked with artists including Amy Winehouse and Beverley Knight. The lineup can be tweaked to cater for your individual requirements, whether by adding more musicians, or providing only a duo (for a laidback lounge feel) or trio.

The Swing King and his band are one of the most sought after live acts in the UK, providing great live entertainment for superb value. Some raw video footage of the act performing is available - please enquire for more information.

“We booked The Swing King a year and a half before our wedding date. Booking was easy and we received a fast response to confirm his availability. The Swing King was booked as a surprise for our guests, he remained discrete as asked, until everyone was seated and he was due to perform. The guests were tremendously impressed as were we, with his beautiful voice and the words he sang flowed naturally. His sense of style, flare and charisma helped to add a truly wonderful ambiance to our wedding. His good looks also proved a hit with the ladies young and old and turned the heads of many envious men! Thank you Swing King for providing us with unforgettable entertainment during our wedding, we would highly recommend you to anyone. A natural star!”

“We ended up having The Swing King and King Zorg for the wedding as Ol' Blue Eyes couldn't fly back into the country I think? Both artists were fantastic! Very professional and had everyone up dancing, we had comments from everyone saying what a brilliant band and singer we had. Booking with Function Central was easy, professional and stress free. Would definitely use you again, the quality of the acts you represent is fantastic! Thanks for everything.”

“It is my pleasure to recommend The Swing King to event organisers and party planners. Working in music I am all too aware of the need for live musicians to be punctual, professional, and flexible to the needs of the organisers. The Swing King ticks all these boxes but above all is a warm and intelligent singer who is eager to ensure your event is a special one. Highly recommended.”

And, as an aside, he turned the head of every woman at the event - and a few of the men beside! We thank him for contibuting to a very memorable day and would happilly have him back on another occasion.”

“We really loved both the acts. The Swing King was absolutely excellent. All our guests said he was fantastic and they really enjoyed listening to his music. We could not find fault with anything in his performance at all. The DJ was also excellent. Many of our guests said he was really friendly and he would take requests if he had the music there. He also ran through the first dance just as we had asked by asking the other guests to join us on the dance floor. It was also fantastic that he played our first dance again at the end which really ended the evening wonderfully. Both acts were absolutely brilliant, and they were really friendly when they contacted me before to arrange music etc. I had quite a lot of contact before hand with the company to sort out forms etc. for my venue. I was always emailed back by the next day and my questions were always answered fully. I have recommended both the acts and the company to friends and family and will definitely use them in the future. Thanks, Jess.”

“It was a magical day filled with laughter, a fair few tears, family, friends, great food and of course fantastic music - from surprise late night performances from Olly Murs, Alexandra Burke to the chiselled crooner who entertained party-goers with Rat Pack numbers whilst they tried thier luck at glittering casino tables... Back in the Great Hall, the 150 guests invited to the evening celebrations were starting to arrive. Entertained by model and singer The Swing King, who treated them to a set that included Ain't That A Kick In The Head, Come Fly With Me, and Mr Bojangles...”

“Very happy, the Swing King was just fantastic. 10/10!”

He really is a nice guy and he even helped with suggestions for our first dance which was greatly appreciated. In terms of his performance, WOW he is really good. He has a fantastic voice, very charismatic and has was able and willing to cover a variety of tracks to suit all ages and musical tastes. Our guests were bowled over by him and it really provided the perfect edge to our day. In summary, thank you for everything you did and put into making our special day such a success and we will continue to recommend you and The Swing King at every opportunity.”

“The Swing King was great!! He was very professional and the ladies absolutely loved him! Would definitely book him again and recommend him to other party organisers!”

10

“Completely satisfied. He was a perfect choice for us. He was approachable, easy to talk to and seemed to really care about what we wanted from him on the day. He helped us decide how best to organise his sessions by giving us his views based on his experience. Our wedding was on board a riverboat and he was really looking forward to performing as we sailed down the River Cam. The smaller venue was no problem and he really engaged with our friends and family, giving them all some personal attention, which pleased the female guests no end!! He even gave the microphone to my daughter who sang Mercy with him, a memory she will treasure I am sure! All in all, I cannot rate him high enough. I would certainly recommend him and would have no hesitation in booking him again in the future. We wish him continued success! Big thanks!!!!”

10

“We recently booked The Swing King to sing at my mum's surprise 60th birthday party. He is the full package, great voice, handsome and full of charisma! He was a massive hit with all the guests - especially the ladies and the party wouldn't have been as good without him. He was polite and professional and interacted well with the guests. We received numerous compliments about him! We will definitely be booking him for future events. I cannot recommend him highly enough; in short, he was amazing! Thank you.”

10

“He was amazing! From first contact before the day to discuss details all the way thru to the end of his performance on the day he was fantastic. Even being on the hottest day if the year didn't seem to make a difference to his performance. He interacted with all the guests amazingly and those of us who ignored the heat and stayed on the dance floor all night were thoroughly entertained and blown away by his voice. I would not hesitate to book him again if the occasion arose.”

10

“The Swing King was brilliant: he walked around the tables during the meal and everyone sang along, the choice of songs was just right! He did 2 great sessions he was friendly and really made the meal special!”

10

“The Swing King was perfect for our event. He was great after a quick chat he got on with the singing and was Fantastic! He made the evening go really well and was enjoyed by all our guests. I must also add how honest he is...I over paid him and the following day he contacted me and repaid me the extra!! That I found unbelievable!! I am hoping to book him again in May for another family gathering so will be in touch.”

“Amazing, we had the best night and it was really down to the atmosphere. Everyone couldn't wait for dinner to finish so we could move aside the tables and dance.”

10

“I just wanted to say The Swing King was absolutely fabulous at our cocktail party on Saturday night. He had the party in full swing in no time and the DJ sets he did before, in the middle and after his sessions were perfect. Everyone had such a good time - we've had so much great feedback from our guests about him and his singing I just wanted to say a big thank you.”
