Modern songs funk swing - Electro Swing
Purveyors of good-looking swing, Electro Swing offer modern songs rearranged into hip-shaking, jump-jiving funk and swing.
Having honed their skills as the resident band at the BBC Club & Grange St. Paul's they are now one of the most sought after alternative covers bands in the UK.
Think electro-swing Beyonce and retro remixed Rihanna alongside some toe-tapping tunes from Elvis and Ray Charles. What is not to boogie at?
Boasting four vocalists, saxophone, clarinet, keys, bass and drums between just five outstanding musicians Electro Swing offer an impressive package. Pleasantly professional, well presented and adaptive they entertain all ages as background or foreground entertainment.
- Taking inspiration from the lavish 1920s parties that Gatsby threw and stirring some postmodern songs in to the mix, Electro Swing offer remixes and re-arrangements of some of your favourite chart hits in an infectious electro-swing style.
And yes, we were doing this postmodern jukebox wedding band thing before postmodern jukebox were doing it!
