None of this is ever complete or exclusive - we are always adding new material and take great pleasure in adding special requests for wedding couples & corporate clients.
Having fantastic music was a really important part of our wedding day and so after listening to The The Swingtones we knew we had found the right band for us. They really embraced the tone of our wedding, adjusting the music to suit us and our guests. The afternoon performance at the end of our meal was just beautiful and provided something really intimate and special for our day guests. Once the evening performances commenced it was clear everyone wanted to dance and the band did justice to all the swing classics, making sure the dance floor was constantly full!
The band manager Phil, even added a last minute saxophonist to perform for us which was completely unexpected and absolutely brilliant! And as if they hadn't done enough already, they played all the songs we had requested as part of the DJ playlist we had provided. Inviting a band to provide the soundtrack for your wedding day is nerve racking; however The The Swingtones took any stress away and handled themselves in a lovely and professional manner - I even had guests ask for their details so they could organise an event just so they could come and perform! Thank you for making our day so special for us, our families and our guests. xxx

It was certainly a treat to have The The Swingtones playing at our recent 40th wedding anniversary party. They played 2 x 45 min sets - the first was swing which set the mood perfectly for the lunch and then a soul/modern set to follow the meal which very few of the party could resist getting up and dancing to. Wonderful vocals backed by Phil and the excellent band - great music and nice people which helped make it a day to remember for all.
