Help & Advice:

If you are unsure about which line-up will be best for your event then we have included some information below to help you decide. All line-ups are flexible and can be mixed and matched to meet the requirements and theme of your event. The Swing Band is available in the following combinations:

  • Solo (Cocktail Pianist, Solo Guitarist, or Solo Saxophone)
  • 2-Piece (Male Singer, Saxophone & Piano or Guitar)
  • 3-Piece (Male Singer, Saxophone & Piano or Guitar and Double Bass or Drums)
  • 4-Piece (Male Singer, Saxophone & Piano or Guitar, Double Bass, Drums)
  • 5-Piece (Male or Female Singer, Saxophone & Piano or Guitar, Trumpet, Double Bass, Drums)
  • 6-Piece (Male or Female Singer, Saxophone & Piano or Guitar, Trumpet, Double Bass, Drums)
Want a Singer?

Want to sing to your favourite song of all time? All line-ups now include the sound of our fantastic male singer (subject to availability at the time of booking). Our female vocalist is also available and can be added to any of the line ups above.

Music for Dancing

If you want to guarantee that everyone gets up on that dance floor, then you must hire the drummer! His infectious beat will mean your guests just can’t resist that groove.

No Power?

Perhaps your event is outside or perhaps your venue has sound restrictions or a no-power policy. That’s no problem for Silk Street Swing! Unlike other swing bands, we have various all-acoustic options available. Just get in touch for more information.


If you are looking to set that low-key Manhattan bar mood or want a layer of sound for your guests to talk on, then our smaller combinations make ideal background music.


Wanting to create a timeless impression? The line-ups with a singer and drums have a large sound so depending on the size of the performance space, this will give you that entertainment with a little more impact.

Still Unsure?

Still uncertain about which ensemble to choose or need some advice? Please call us and we would be delighted to help you pick the perfect line-up for your special event.


If what we are wearing is not for you, the don’t worry as we understand that different events call for different dress codes. We have several other outfits available which include lounge suits, dinner jackets, smart casual, vintage themed clothing. Perhaps you require us to wear your corporate colours or fit in with the design and colour scheme of your party theme? If you had something else in mind, please let us know at the time of enquiry and we’ll meet your needs.
