Performing an exciting mix of 1940s classics, Boogie-Woogie, Western Swing, 50’s Jump Jazz, The Swing Commanders are six stunning specialist musicians, five vibrant voices and thirteen versatile instruments.
Every member of the Swing Commanders sings and plays at least one instrument, sometimes three! Yet, what makes them stand out even above their incredible music ability and performing skills, is their joie-de-vivre!
The Swing Commanders take well-crafted songs from the thirties to the fifties, from American Songbook classics to Western Swing and Novelty songs, and overlay them with lush vocal harmonies and hot solos. The rhythms, varying from ballads to jive to quicksteps are sure to have you dancing.
Audiences who experience the band for the first time are amazed at the energetic showmanship, the instrument swapping, the intricate arrangements, and sophisticated vocal blend. This isn’t a nostalgia trip or Rat Pack karaoke. It’s fine songs played joyfully and brilliantly.
