About Silk Street Swing

Sharply dressed, sensibly priced, professional swing rat pack band. We bring events to life with our music. We'd love to do the same for you
Jazz band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Everyone at Silk Street Swing is passionate about making your event stand out from all the rest by delivering professional entertainment and an experience that exceeds your expectation. Silk Street Swing was formed back in 2009, following on from the success of our Dixieland jazz band, Silk Street Jazz. Silk Street Swing travels all over the UK and has performed at many prestigious venues. Although our band members are full-time professionals and some of the leading musicians in their field, we understand how important your event is to you and we aim to enhance it in every way. Whilst we have recorded extensively for TV, including programmes and commercials for the BBC and Channel 4, we’d be more than happy to appear in your party or wedding video so you can remember how special the day was. We perform at hundreds of events each and every year. If you would like to hire the Swing Band for your wedding, private party, or corporate event, then we would be delighted to hear from you. We offer a friendly, personal, unrivalled service and realise the importance of cost. Unlike many other bands, we have a guaranteed booking service and plenty of feedback from happy customers.

Hi Jonathan. I just wanted to say a huge thank you for 17th June – we had an amazing time and we are so grateful to the band for creating such a wonderful atmosphere, and on such a hot day too! We received lots of positive comments about your music from so many of our guests; we would highly recommend Silk Street Swing.
