Swingamathing are a truly 40's styled swing band. We pack a 'big band' punch in a small band package. Imagine yourself at a wartime village dance with a band playing favourite tunes ideal for dancing...that's us in a nutshell. We can fit into small venues but feel equally at home on a large stage. We have a female vocalist who has all the styling (both looks and sounds) you would expect. Our brass section truly sets us apart from so many other bands with authentic sounding arrangements that will take you back to that classic era. Our pianist, double bass player and drummer add the swing rhythms to package it all together into an amazingly authentic vintage, retro performance.
We use different set lists for every gig we do as we try to personalise it for the occasion. However, think of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Nina Simone, Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima and you will know what we are like. We play tunes that you will recognise such as 'It don't Mean a Thing', 'My Baby Just Care for Me', 'In the Mood', 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy' and also other fun tunes such as 'There ain't Anybody Here But Us Chickens', 'King of the Swingers' or 'Bring Me Sunshine'. We have a wide repetoire.
