4 Occasions That Swing Bands For Hire Suit Perfectly:

A tipped hat, a mic chord looped like a lasso… Whatever the quirks of swing music, you can’t deny that a full, toe-tapping band has a lot more than high notes to offer. Your event, aiming for glory, could do so with a twinkling grin by choosing swing bands for hire in the UK.

And yet, although the genre can jive to many occasions, we reckon there are at least four that always fit the bill. Join us for a swift ride through the natural territory of a swing performer, and how we’ll make your day a treat.

1. A landmark anniversary

10 years, 25, even 50 – the annual fawning of a marriage is a beautiful thing, but even more so when there’s a quarter or half-century under your belt.

Few music styles conjure the romance, thrill and enduring energy of a relationship better than swing. It’s perfect for big anniversaries, the kind we look back on like those vivid family photographs in the attic. Older couples, in particular, can shake off the cobwebs and get back to the dancefloor, unable to resist the wild, lovelorn lyrics!

2. That premier awards show

“And now, we move onto the ceremonial part of the evening…” Some guests might be creaking in their chairs by this point, stuffed with food and wine, and (even though they knew what was coming) less than enthused about clapping for their co-workers every few minutes.

But swing bands for hire can break up your corporate awards evening, adding a livewire jolt when it’s needed. Book a short half-time set, then a longer performance after the final gong’s been handed out. If you’re going for a high-class theme, nothing delivers it more than smart, jacketed, horn-blowing musicians belting out the hits.

3. An awesome birthday

Arranging the birthday entertainment for someone who fancies themselves a bit of a debonair? Perfect: they’ll have eyes as wide as the table spread when you unveil a swing band like us, pumped up and ready to finger-click our way to your boy or girl’s heart.

There’s the option, potentially, of getting your lucky so-and-so onstage with the group, taking the microphone for a rendition of ‘My Way.’ Cue guffaws from the crowd – but this is what it’s all about, isn’t it? Celebrating the day of your entry into this world with a sound that truly makes you feel alive…

4. The retirement party of your dreams

We spend so long grafting for our livelihood that the end of it – and, really, the start of a new period in one’s existence – deserves a special commemoration. For retirees, swing bands for hire are an excellent choice, seeing as they’re bright, happy, and able to reach across age divides like no other. The younger members of the audience will be sucked into the spirit of the day. Actually, they’ll see that maturity is worth reaching if this is the soundtrack to it!

So, now that we’ve aired some ideas, we’d love to hear a few from your lips too. As one of the most professional swing bands for hire in the country, Silk Street Swing can deal with anything you throw at us – weddings, funerals, the odder stimulants for a knees-up… It’s all in your hands, which is why you should get in touch, and swing when you’re winning with a cool events plan.
