A compact 13-piece swing band performing classic songs by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Harry Connick Jr, Michael Bublé etc......

Mr Swing’s Dance Orchestra is a compact 13-piece Rat-pack style big band comprising male vocalist, four brass, five saxes and three rhythm. Founded in 1997 with help from The Prince’s Trust, Mr Swing has become very popular on the corporate, society and wedding circuits. Mr Swing's Dance Orchestra performs classic swing band songs from the radio broadcasts of the thirties, through the Glenn Miller sound of the forties to the Rat-pack days of the fifties and beyond. Well-known big band tunes made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Andy Williams, Tom Jones and Neil Diamond and more recently revived by Harry Connick Jnr, Robbie Williams and Michael Bublé. Mr Swing is very versatile. It can perform a mix of styles for a party crowd including audience participation and sing-alongs; strict-tempo sets for a ballroom dance or theme its repertoire for a wartime event. The band is equally at home playing in small venues to audiences of fifty as it is performing to crowds of a thousand and always adjusts its performance area and volume to suit the occasion. As well as performing at countless weddings, Mr Swing’s Dance Orchestra has entertained for BMW, The Air Crew Association, Leeds United FC, Elior and ITE Moda amongst others and was very proud to play at Buckingham Palace for The Prince’s Trust Royal Charter Award ceremony.

Chris and I cannot thank you enough for the entertainment you provided on Saturday. We had a marvellous time and the compliments we received from all guests young and old were only positive. You had people having the time of their lives on Saturday with some dancing who would usually not get up and dance. The skills the band have are undeniable. I truly couldn’t have asked for better music for our wedding day. I’m so sad it’s all over but I’m hoping I can get some event planned in the future where I can invite you guys along to play again. Our greatest appreciation and thanks to each and everyone of you.

The band went down a storm and already I’ve been asked for your details. We really appreciated the effort and journey and thank you all. In hindsight, I wish that we had you on longer as the feedback really has been amazing. Please pass on my thanks to all of the band.
