ABOUT US – The Swinging Little Big Band

Swinging Little Big Band at The Grey Lady, Tunbridge Wells

 

From an opening hand of cool-swinging classics like ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘Beyond The Sea’, The Swinging Little Big Band is like scotch-on-the-rocks for your ears. Each song is faithful to the original big band arrangement, but carefully distilled to fit a punchy six-piece group. As your event warms up, the band responds with a flush of showstoppers by Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Harry Connick Jr and Michael Buble. Amongst them, though, is the sound that has made The Swinging Little Big Band so sought after: their own, swing arrangements of songs from a different era. Music from The Rolling Stones to The Stone Roses; The Beatles to The Strokes, shuffled and re-dealt as classic swing, jump-jive and salsa. Even Radiohead gets the Vegas treatment! The result is a dancefloor packed with every age group and an unforgettable night’s entertainment.

We will tailor our set list according to your event, but you can expect to hear classic music made famous by artists like Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Harry Connick Jr and Michael Buble. The famous ‘Rat Pack, Re-loaded ‘ element features jazz, latin and swing interpretations of songs by the likes of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pulp, The Stone Roses, The Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, The Fratellis, The Zutons, Oasis and Radiohead.
