The Swing Commanders
2 Empire Mews
From American Songbook classics to Western Swing, they overlay lush vocal harmonies and hot solos. Ballads to jive, they always get the dance floor moving.
Packed with energy and serving up 1940s classics, boogie-woogie, Western swing and '50s jump jazz, these five musicians rock on stage, leading the party from the front with their instrument swapping virtuosity.
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 always get the dance floor moving!
The band members have a wealth of musical experience, from bar room to classical concert hall, as well as an understanding of dance and theatre. This results in a stage show that is technically precise and wildly entertaining.
