Swing

Down for the Count Swing Orchestra

Down for the Count's collective of 30 professional musicians perform together in a variety of different band line-ups.

In addition to the fantastic regular line-ups you see below, we can also create a bespoke band just for you. If you don't see what you're looking for, get in touch with your ideas and let's talk about what is possible.

Vintage Bands & Orchestras
Our vintage swing bands are quite simply some of the most popular in the UK. We're well known for our 11-piece swing band Down for the Count (often found at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and Pizza Express Jazz Club) and our 20- to 45-piece Concert Orchestra (as seen at London Jazz Festival). We also have a fabulous 1940s styled, 19-piece Big Band. All our vintage bands are also available with vintage dancers!

Wedding Party and Show Bands
Our fantastic selection of award-winning party bands and show bands for hire, available in a range of line-ups performing swing, soul, Motown and pop music. Our party bands are designed to appeal to audiences of all ages, making them suitable for wedding receptions, private parties and corporate events. Our party bands are available in a range of sizes from 6 to 27 musicians.

Acoustic Roaming Bands
Acoustic walkabout acts, including our fun swing and pop band The Vintage Strollers and New Orleans brass band Get Brassy. These bands are ideal if there is no electricity in the performance location, or your venue prohibits amplified music.

Jazz Bands
Sophisticated entertainment from our stylish jazz bands, performing jazz classics alongside modern songs performed in a vintage style. Including instrumental and vocal-led line-ups.

Wedding Ceremony Music
The perfect entertainment for your wedding ceremony, from Down for the Count Strings - our stylish ensemble performing classical, pop and swing music - and our wedding pianist.

Vintage Dancers
Vintage swing, Lindy hop and Charleston dancers to hire. Our dancers perform live alongside our bands and take a fun, interactive lesson which is the perfect icebreaker at all events.
