About: The SWINGLAND Band performs music from the Big Band era.
Special arrangements are patterned after hit recordings of such famous bands as Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, and Harry James, but our compact size enables us fit within budgets that cannot accommodate a big band. Maximum size is six musicians (3 rhythm & 3 horns) plus male vocalist (ala Frank Sinatra).
In addition to swing style, we add variety to our program with related rhythms such as shuffle (Louie Prima) and early rock & roll (Bill Haley & the Comets).
Our program has proven successful with mature audiences and also with members of the younger generation who appreciate the Swing style of music.
