From the music of the Big Band era, to modern chart hits via Las Vegas and Hollywood, the Chris Mackey Orchestra is as comfortable in the dance hall as the concert hall!
This versatile 10-piece band features some of the best touring and West End musicians, led by trombonist and vocalist Chris Mackey, the orchestra has the versatility of being able to smoothly transition from Glenn Miller to Amy Winehouse.
If you want your 40’s night swinging to Big Band hits, or your wedding guests dancing in the hall and not outside because the disco’s too loud(!) then the Chris Mackey Orchestra is for you.
Contact us and discuss your requirements and let the Chris Mackey Orchestra make your party go with a swing!

"I thought your band were excellent, although l expected nothing less with the ex military hard core. From a dancers point of view, l loved the two sets, You nailed Jumping at the Savoy and 2 O'Clock Jump the highlights of that set!"

"Thank you so much for your wonderful band, I have recommended you to several people attending who have asked for your details. I would like to thank you for saving the night, without your speakers and microphone the auction could not have taken place and we would not have secured such a large amount. I am aware that you had already left and came back to save our evening…… it was hugely appreciated. I will certainly recommend you and your band. If you would like a quote for your website please do not hesitate to ask."
