The Numbers Racket is a high energy, six-piece jive and swing band playing classic and modern tunes.

The Numbers Racket is a professional 7-piece swing, jazz, jump jive and blues band. We have many years experience of providing high quality live music for all sorts of events. We put on a great show, featuring a powerful horn section, a female singer and we dress in vintage zoot suits, art deco ties and wing tip shoes. Our set includes swing classics by the likes of Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Glen Miller, Nina Simone and more, and also comes right up to date with neo-swing numbers and some surprise covers of modern pop songs and TV theme tunes. This band is about making your celebration go with a bang, and we’re guaranteed to get people dancing and singing along. We aim to give you and your guests a fabulous time with our high-energy performance. You can be assured that we listen to people, and always do our best to accommodate your requirements.

Absolutely brilliant. Swift to respond to emails/texts, very accomodating to our needs, friendly, minimally intrusive on the day when setting up and most importantly the music was fantastic. These guys are an accomodating group and at very reasonable price. All our guest were full of praise. We would gladly have paid a higher rate for their performance. Thank you very the numbers racket swing band!

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!
