From an opening hand of cool-swinging classics like ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘Beyond The Sea’, The Swinging Little Big Band is like scotch-on-the-rocks for your ears. Each song is faithful to the original big band arrangement, but carefully distilled to fit a punchy six-piece group. As your event warms up, the band responds with a flush of showstoppers by Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Harry Connick Jr and Michael Buble.

The show

We will tailor our set list according to your event with classic music made famous by artists like Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Harry Connick Jr and Michael Buble. The famous ‘Rat Pack, Re-loaded ‘ element features jazz, latin and swing interpretations of songs by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Pulp, The Stone Roses, The Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, The Fratellis, Oasis and Radiohead.

Even Radiohead gets the Vegas treatment!

The Swinging Little Big Band also plays its own swing arrangements of songs from a different era. Music from The Rolling Stones to The Stone Roses; The Beatles to The Strokes, is shuffled and re-dealt as classic swing, jump-jive and salsa. The result is a dancefloor packed with every age group and an unforgettable night’s entertainment.
