Our 5 most popular swing songs:
April 15, 2016
A lot of people ask us about the kind of music we perform as a full-time swing band for hire. The truth is we tend to tailor our set list depending on the setting. We’ve got songs to suit restaurants, weddings, corporate shows, product launches, office parties and much more.
We cover all the classic swing hits that you know and love – songs by Dean Martin, Bobby Darrin, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and the like. But we also love to perform modern swing classics from the likes of Michael Bublé, Jamie Cullum and Robbie Williams
With that said, we thought it’d be a good idea to highlight just a few of our more popular numbers:
Mack The Knife
We recently performed this at a corporate event for the fashion label Orla Kiely and it went down incredibly well. Originally a German song, the translated version is one of the best known songs in the world and given a swing twist it is a staple at almost every event we perform.
Dream a Little Dream of Me
One of the most beautiful numbers ever written. Given a swing make over the song takes on a life of its own. The Robbie Williams-esque version is a firm favourite at weddings and we’ve had it work really well as a first dance in the past.
What a Wonderful World
Of course, we mean the Louis Armstrong version. An absolute crowd pleaser and guaranteed sing-a-long song. Often best reserved until the last number of the night – to send revellers away from your party with a smile on their face
King of the Swingers
I mean, the clue is in the title – it’s a swing classic. One for both the adults and the kids in the room it’s a firm favourite of ours to perform. Covered by everyone from Paulo Nutini to Robbie Williams – I’d argue that our version has the edge
