About


High Society Swing play songs that have stood the test of time and have been made famous by the likes of Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerlad, Frank Sinatra and Luis Prima. A great old fashioned sound that is suitable for creating a vintage, classy atmosphere, for dancing or as background music.

This upbeat swing sound is fun, celebratory and light hearted, whilst delivering an impressive musicality and nostalgic atmosphere. In keeping with the era, this band always dresses smart, in full suits and hats, which adds to the old fashioned, vintage style.

    FAQs

    Can you play background music for our event? 
    Yes, we can play as a duo or trio, which gives a nice atmosphere whilst remaining quiet enough to be in the background.

    How long are your sets? 
    We usually play two 45 minute sets for an evening concert, and an hour for an afternoon set.  We are happy to do both the afternoon and evening.
