About Schw!ng Jazz Band

Vintage-themed jazz band
London
Public liability insurance of £1 million
Verified profile
Rip-roaring authentic swing played by some of the top jazz musicians on the European and U.S scene.

MEET THE BAND First up is the "clarinet king", the "almighty alto", the "tenor temerity" that is reedman Dillon Baiocchi. Hailing from the land of the free, the home of the brave, Dillon brings a slice of Downtown New York to the group with his fat tone, tasty licks and impeccable hipster beard. Next up is the "six-string wizard", the linchpin of the organisation and all-round dapper gentleman guitarist Mr. Adam Taylor. With an infectious jazz swing that'll keep your feet moving into the early hours and a bonhomie attitude sure to keep the frivolities fresh, this English esquire promises the real deal, authentic swing of the highest order, naturally. On the bass, holding down the fort and providing the swing carpet for us all to jive on throughout the night is our Austrian ami and brother, Herr. Johannes Fend. And finally at the traps, putting stick to skin and cymbal is our German time-keeper and drummer extraordinaire Richie Struck. When you feel that vibe, that irresistible swing, you just gotta dance! And last but not least, La Chanteuse! With the pipes of Ella and the looks of Marilyn, Holly Taylor adds the icing, the cherry and the sparkler to the cake with her disarming jazz vocals. A true performer, as singer/actor you can be sure of a class act from our resident belle of the ball.

Schw!ng brought such a great energy to the wedding and their vintage outfits looked amazing! They went the extra mile, making sure that everyone was enjoying themselves and creating a great atmosphere full of dancing that all ages could enjoy. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!
