SwingZing captures the Jump Jive & Swing sounds of the 40s & 50s including Louis Prima, Louis Jordan, Fats Domino, Duke Ellington, Count Basie & Nina Simone to name but a few. The band is led by Jeremy Huggett on tenor sax & vocals and includes female vocals, trumpet, trombone, keyboards, double bass and drums. As well as performing as a full 7 piece, we can reduce the band to a duo, trio, quartet or 5 piece depending on the size of venue and to cater for all budgets. The exciting, lively sound and the versatility of the band is appealing to audiences of all ages making it one of the most popular bands in the UK and ideal for dancing - great for weddings, parties, anniversaries, festivals and corporate events. Based in Bristol the band can travel anywhere in the UK and beyond. If you want your special occasion to go with a zing and with plenty of swing - it has to be SwingZing.

Swinzing provided the most wonderful roving jazz backdrop to our wedding reception. A fabulously relaxed jazz groove to help get everyone in the perfect mood. A pleasure to deal with.

"SwingZing were fantastic at our party! Right from the off we had good communication to organise song lists and timings for the event. They were on time and set up and sound checked quickly - professional to a T and a lovely bunch of guys and girl, who has a great voice BTW!! Brilliant musicians who love what they do and delivered a top class set of songs for us to party the night away to! We won't hesitate in booking them again for any future VoxSkool events!
From all of us - BIG THANKS!! XX"
