Down for the Count Swing Orchestra

Down for the Count Swing Orchestra

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.

They are constantly in demand, and in 2018 alone they sold out Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, Hideaway Streatham, Pizza Express Jazz Club Soho, Le Caveau de la Huchette (Paris) and the opening night of The London Jazz Festival.

The band have released two albums - a 2018 live album "Live at the Tabernacle", and a 2017 studio album "Let’s Dance", celebrating the music of the dance bands of the 1930s and 40s, which was featured on Clare Teal’s BBC Radio 2 show.

The band recreate classic tunes from the likes of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Glenn Miller. But this is no mere nostalgia trip – Down for the Count perform each song in their own unmistakeable 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.

Ticket prices:
Adults £20, Seniors, Children & Groups £18
