OVERVIEW

Join the Down for the Count Swing Orchestra for “one hellova celebration of vintage music” (TimeOut London) as they celebrate the Legends of Swing.

Down for the Count are a mini big band who bring the sounds of the Swing Era back to life, with an electrifying show full of incredible energy and musicianship. Described as “a breath of fresh air on the swing scene” they are now regularly found at jazz clubs in the UK and abroad (Ronnie Scott’s London, Le Caveau de la Huchette Paris), at festivals including London Jazz Festival, and on BBC Radio.

Down for the Count’s new show for 2021 celebrates the Legends of Swing – expect to hear songs from the incredible musicians who pioneered swing music, including instrumental songs from the likes of Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Count Basie and Glenn Miller, and vocal classics from singers such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat ‘King’ Cole.

The band recreates classic tunes from the Swing Era, but this is no mere nostalgia trip – the band perform each song in their own unmistakable style, breathing new life into the best vintage music. Combine that with the band’s top class instrumental solos, sublime vocal performances, and irresistible humour and joie de vivre, and you get a show that will leave you feeling uplifted and wanting more.
