Tips on choosing a perfect swing band in London

If you're looking to hire a Swing Band for your wedding, corporate or private celebration in London, take a look at our extensive catalogue to find the best option for your event. You can filter Swing Bands by price and location, and compare reviews, images and videos to help you make the right choice. When choosing a Function Music Band it's important to consider:

When you need to keep your guests dancing all night, there’s one way guaranteed to keep your party jumping – hiring a swing band.

This distinctive 1930s American swing style is sure to get your guests moving, and you can even bring in some trained swing dancers to teach your attendees a few of the moves, or leave them to their own creativity as the music takes them.

Before you start the process of choosing your swing band, check what stage space is available at your venue, as London swing bands can be large in number, and each member will have their instruments to accommodate, too. You then need to factor in your budget, theme, and any other requirements you have for your chosen band, before starting to make a shortlist of criteria-filling performers.

If you’re bringing a swing band to your party in London, you need to make sure you’ve got plenty of dancing space – a dancefloor is absolutely essential if you want your guests to properly enjoy the music on show.
