Beyond Swing are an exceptionally talented and very flexible band, who can perform music from the classic era of Jazz to current Pop hits... all cunningly put into vintage style!
Having re-arranged lots of music from internet sensation, Postmodern Jukebox, this fabulous band have also created many of their own stomping swing twists on pop tunes from the 70s, 80s and 90s up to the present day!
The band have a huge repertoire and can tailor any performance to an individual clients needs. They have a large selection of laid back tunes when something more low key is required, as well as their hip up-beat swing tunes that will make you want to put on your spats and tassels and learn to Charleston like it’s 1929.
These outstanding musicians can tailor their performances to the exact needs of any client, performing in a specific style, or creating a varied programme of music through an evening. If you want all the sophistication of swing music at your event, but want everybody to get down and boogie afterwards, the band can also perform a Soul/Funk set later in the evening (see repertoire).
Their charismatic singers deliver superb performances from mellow jazz through to the most energetic and soulful funk. You can choose to have either male or female singers performing for you, or even better... have both! They also feature the funkiest horn section imaginable who will add a massive wow to any event.
Beyond Swing feature a flexible line up, normally performing as a 5 piece, but with additional members up to a full 9 piece band. They come with a male singer as standard but you can request one of their female singers as lead vocalist instead.

You guys were absolutely fantastic. We were blown away and you made the party. Thanks so much!
Sabrina Corelli - This Is Beyond Limited,
Great band, they were happy to go along with our crazy ideas and everyone loved them. Thanks!
The band were FANTASTIC! They set up quickly and quietly and then their two sets were just brilliant! We've had so many great comments from friends and family and lots of people want to know who they are and more details. They dealt with our requests without any hesitation and our first dance was learnt especially and played wonderfully. I'd definitely recommend them and book them again. Thank you!
Great band, well presented and added a different level of class to our drinks reception. Would absolutely recommend.
Paulette & Russel
Just wanted to say a big thank you to the guys who played at our wedding. Russ and I were very excited about having a live band at our wedding as it was kind of our gift to each other. And despite these high expectations we weren't disappointed! We weren't actually sure if our guests would be excited about the kind of band we'd booked, but as I mentioned, our original motivation was a selfish one as we loved the idea of having an amazing band play during our wedding meal. But everyone raved about you! You guys turned out to be the "wow factor" at our wedding and we are so pleased we splashed out on you! Thank you so much for making a perfect day even more special. You were a very classy addition to our wedding day.
