A great night and the Swinging 60s created a fantastic atmosphere. I would recommend the band to anyone organizing a Dinner Dance or a similar type of event.

Thank you so much for Saturday night. Everyone loved you. I have had a lot of people asking me for your details as they would like to book you in the future. You made the night stress free for me. My mum and dad said you were the best band that they had ever seen and they were so pleased with my choice. Next time I arrange a party I will definitely book you guys. Thanks so much xx

Thanks so much for yesterday, it was perfect. Andy you got the atmosphere just right for our celebration in honour of mums life. She would've loved it, and lots of the songs you sung were amongst her favourites. Thanks again, it was a very special day.

3-piece 60s band with male/female vocals and electric guitars

We are The Swinging 60s band, performing all those fab hits of the 60s era and taking you and your guests on a trip down memory lane with our extensive repertoire of 60s songs and eye-catching costumes. We have an excellent reputation for putting on a great show and are totally reliable. We are very flexible with timings and are happy to fit in with your requirements. On average we perform up to 3 x 45 minute sets per event but these timings can be tailored to suit your function (e.g. you may only require 2 x 1 hour sets). We are happy performing both indoor and outdoor events. and have all our own equipment, so only require a suitable power supply. We aim to arrive at a venue well in advance of guests, to allow time for setting up/sound checks. Early access to the venue will be discussed and arranged with you.
From: £350 per event

FAQs

  • What are the highlights of your career?

    Performing at Alexandra Palace London...The Winter Gardens Margate...Quex Park....and the good ol' Whitstable Regatta every year! In years gone by, the lads were in a band that won "Opportunity Knocks" twice.

  • What kind of events do you usually serve?

    Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Retirements, Corporate functions, beer festivals, vintage car shows, various clubs, hotels, village halls, social clubs - gatherings of all sizes from 50 people to several thousands!

  • How can event planners pay for your services?

    Cash on the night, or cheque in advance.

  • How long do you play for?

    Usually 2 - 3 hours but have played longer on several occasions.

  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?

    PA - yes. Lighting - minimal (mostly led disco-style floor lights).

  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

    Yes!

  • How much space do you require?

    We have a lot of equipment so in small spaces it hinders our performance as we are then confined and restricted on movement (although it does not affect the vocal performance). That said, we try to be as flexible as possible and certainly do not expect a large stage at every event. We also ask event organisers to give some thought to providing a changing room/green room area, as we have stage costumes to change into.

  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?

    Our songs are not listed on this site so you would need to contact us to find out if we do the song you require. If it is already within our repertoire then we can certainly add it into the performance for you.

  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?

    We take very few breaks, dependent upon the event. As a rough guide, for a 3 hour gig we would take a couple of breaks lasting 10-15 mins each.

Set List/Services

The Swinging 60s have such a vast repertoire that they do not list every song of each set list they have.
