About John

6 piece swing, jive and blues band guaranteed to get your toes tapping
Electric Guitarist

For more than 15 years, The Numbers Racket has pleased adoring audiences with fantastic swing music. As the UK’s premier 6-piece jive band, we regularly play gigs. Occasionally, we also record our music for people to enjoy outside of the live environment. The Numbers Racket has plenty of experience when it comes to performing enjoyable live music. In fact, we have more than 150 combined years of practice. Though we’re skilled and professional, we know how to make sure customers relax and have fun. Our band is a member of the Musicians Union.

From customers:

Phil W, 6 years ago

I would recommend The Numbers Racket Swing Band. Very nice to have a band who do not feel the need to push the volume knob to maximum! Their performance was superb!

Stuart M, 6 years ago

They were great, really good upbeat party music, and very professional. Lots of people commented on how good they were. A great success! Thank you. 10/10!
