Take your guests on a glamorous journey back in time with the perfect vintage wedding…
Make your wedding day go with a swing. Hire a DJ, Live Swing Band or Tribute Act and get everyone dancing to the irresistible sounds of the 30s and 40s. There are hundreds of acts to choose from, ranging from traditional to vintage with a modern twist.
A good Swing DJ will play a fantastic and eclectic mix of well-known and catchy tunes from the era. They will also engage with the audience and even take requests. A live Swing Band or Rat Pack Tribute will really add the wow factor to your big day, creating an unforgettable atmosphere and keeping the dancefloor full all evening. Most wedding bands offer a range of packages and can usually tailor their set list to your requirements.
One of the most popular groups in our selection of Swing Bands available to hire is The London Swing and Soul Band, who have been playing together since 2007 and are a flexibe function band offering a wide choice of music performed by a variety of talented singers and musicians.
