A 'Live' Swing Band for your Function

Quick-step/Jive/Foxtrot/Old Time/Waltz/Latin

We aredefinitely not a ‘pop’ group

Ever since it's inception The Chris Walker Swingtet has provided swinging dance music at a wide variety of functions from P&O Cruise liners and top hotels to village halls and marquees on the lawn.

The regular 5 piece line-up can produce a very wide variety of good music in the traditional style from happy 1920's Dixieland tunes to dance hall favourites from the 1930’s to the 1950’s – encompassing exciting ‘Latin’ rhythms and many of the 20th Century’s great classic songs on the way.

The main advantages we can offer are: -

  1. Our music and the volume at which we play are easy on the ear and will not deafen your guests or inhibit their conversation.
  2. Our rates are reasonable and we can work within most budgets.
  3. The band always appears in smart wear – be it Formal or in matching band shirts and band jackets (To suit your occasion).
  4. As an optional extra we can provide background piano music during a meal with the band playing for dancing after.
  5. We do not require a great deal of space and can work within an area no smaller than 5m x 4m.
  6. We carry all our own equipment which is annually tested to meet the highest standards, and simply require a single, earthed, 13amp. power supply.
  7. As full members of the Musicians Union we are, automatically, covered by extensive public liability insurance.
