The Swing Smiths - Function Band For Hire - Biography

The Swing Smiths: a young, talented, flexible, experienced, professional, world-class function band from London - is how I'd sum up the band in a few words.

Since 2005, we have travelled the UK and overseas, performing at countless events. Our most noticeable and proudest achievements have been: performing at the North Sea Jazz Festival, London Swing Festival, Twinwood Festival and on BBC television; closely followed by playing at some breath-taking venues such as, Wembley Stadium, Lord's Cricket Ground, Pinewood Studios, The Savoy Hotel, Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge, Claridges, The ExCel Centre and the ICC in Birmingham. Not to mention the artists we've performed alongside with: Elton John, KT Tunstall, Craig David, Il Divo, Suzi Quatro, M83, Russell Watson, Fran Healy, Mica Paris, Jon Allen, Fyfe Dargerfield, Tony Hadley, Marti Pellow and Barbra Windsor! 

As 9 touring musicians, many of us still manage to find the time to do session work, teach an instrument, manage events and do the occasional sound engineering job! We're a dedicated band and dedicated to living a life of music-filled possibilities.

Our repertoire is humongous and comprises many genres. We cover songs in the style of Rat Pack/Crooner, sophisticated Jazz, Swing, Soul, Motown, Jump & Jive, Pop and even Classical music. In total, the band is well rehearsed and ready to play from a whopping list of 200 songs, spanning over 8 decades of modern music!

We are available to book for weddings (ceremony & reception), private parties and corporate events of any size all year round - just give the date checker at the top right of the page a whirl to see our availability!
