The Gershwin Gang Jazz and Swing Band is a sophisticated jazz band with a large repertoire of jazz favourites. The band is ideal for receptions, dinners and dances, such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and corporate events e.g. exhibitions, product launches, ‘Peaky Blinders’ parties, ‘Gin and Jazz’ etc.
Subscribing to the principle that the old songs really are the best, our jazz and swing band specialises in the well-known jazz/swing songs from the 1920s and 1930s written by the Gershwin brothers, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin and made popular by Fred Astaire, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and Sinatra.
We also play more modern songs with a jazzy twist.
We regularly perform at venues all over South Wales including Portland House in Cardiff, the Marriott Hotel Swansea and Picton Castle near Haverfordwest. But we also play in village halls, company offices and in private homes and marquees in the garden.
Our line-up ranges from solo to quintet but its most popular format is a Manhattan-style trio comprising piano/vocals, double bass and drums. Whatever the format, our music will brighten any event while ensuring that it is not so loud as to spoil your guests’ enjoyment and drown conversation!
You might be able to hear our music while reading this or by clicking ‘Samples’ above, but if not, ask us for some sound files and we will email them to you immediately.
If you require the band for your wedding in the evening, our pianist can also come earlier in the afternoon for the ceremony and drinks reception.
We can also provide a disco at the end of the evening to compliment the live jazz and swing band.
