A vintage 9 piece jump jive and swing/Rock n Roll band which has just finished filming in the Oscar nominated film Phantom thread with sir Daniel Day lewis - playing from 20's Charleston to 40's swing and 50's Rock n roll. Perfect for weddings, Parties and Corporate events and why not create a real buzz with - Great Gatsby as well as 40's war themed swing events. We'll even show the folks the dances to get them involved - guaranteed to 'take the lid off the joint' - very popular on the UK 40's and swing scene.
Two excellent vocalists together with superb stage and lighting presentation guara ... ntees your audience a real wow factor!!
Whilst here, allow me to briefly introduce our authentic Glenn Miller style - Kalamazoo Dance Band - presenting in U.S. Army uniforms and playing a perfect balance of strict temp Ballroom, Sequence, Latin and swing/party numbers. Very popular on the 40's and swing scene and playing at some of the UK's largest war themed events.

plus many many others - we will even play your special song for you or even write it if required.
I have been fronting, singing and playing sax/trumpet for over 20 years and know what is required to make a party go into full swing. I'm passionate about our band and ensure we provide first class entertainment for our booker such that they will pass on the good comments and promote us further.
We I nteract fully with the audience and create a buzzy atmosphere.
This is about ensuring that we exceed the customer expectations way above and beyond.
We run Kal's Kats as a swing band and have another band called The Kalamazoo Dance Band which is a Glenn Miller big band presenting in US Army ... Air Force uniforms creating the magic of the 40's and swing era - both bands are guaranteed to make a night to remember !!
