The SEATTLE area big swing band, THE TEMPOS, was started in 1958 and has performed continuously in the Seattle area since that time. Originally a seven piece group it has grown to a full on eighteen piece swing band playing songs of the 30's and 40's. Many of the charts are original arrangements from some of the biggest bands of that era, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and many more.

We enjoy playing all kinds of venues which include classic car shows, arts in the parks events, fund raisers, adult living villages, wedding receptions, corporate parties and much more. If you have an event that would suit our music played by a great swing band then The Tempos are for you.

With all the music choices available today you might want to make your event a little different and really fun. When's the last time you danced or partied to an eighteen piece swing band? You might be pleasantly surprised at how affordable a good big band can be.

While we have posted a price range we are always negotiable depending on the circumstances of the event.

We prefer to play a two hour event but we will play one to three hours.

The video below was done many years ago from events The Tempos played around the Greater Seattle area. Since that time members have changed and we have a different singer but it gives you an idea of our group and what we do. We've included it purely for your enjoyment.

The Tempos were awesome! I hired them for my retirement community's annual New Year's Eve celebration. Our residents loved them and danced throughout their entire set. The music they played brought back great memories of yesteryear and was a perfect mix of upbeat and slow songs. I would highly recommend The Tempos!

The Tempos’s Response:

If we were able to rate Skyline on the same things as we were they too would receive all 5's! They were very accommodating, professional what we'd call "the perfect client". We look forward to performing for them again.

Talented, courteous, and professional - the Tempos nailed it! I hired the Tempos to come and play for my dad in the nursing home where he lives. The band came in and coordinated with the facility for setup and the gig started right on time. They played all of Dad's old favorites and the singer even danced with my dad (he's in a wheelchair) and totally made his day. Not only did the Tempos do exactly what they said they would do... they went above and beyond what I could ever have imagined to make this one very special occasion for Dad. Thank you Tempos!
