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, both private, such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and corporate events e.g. exhibitions, product launches, receptions.
We are a 1920s’ jazz/swing band that performs in Newcastle and across Tyneside and Northumberland – not an agency that books different bands from London. So you can speak right now to our band leader who will give you a quote for The Gershwin Gang to play at your party.
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.
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!
If you are booking the band to play for your wedding in the evening, our pianist can come earlier in the afternoon for the ceremony and drinks reception.
We can also provide a disco to compliment the live jazz and swing band at the end of the evening.
Contact our band leader for friendly advice, prices and availability.
