The SummerSwing Orchestra is a big band featuring instrumentation in the tradition of the great swing and jazz orchestras of the 1930s and 1940s: saxophones, trumpets, trombones, guitar, bass, piano, drums, and vocals.
Our music book consists of over 1,000 songs from many genres over the past 80 years. Our musical styles include swing (both authentic swing-era and more modern swing), vocal standards, jazz, rock'n'roll and popular music, dance music (foxtrot, cha cha, rhumba, meringue, tango, etc.), waltzes, polkas, line dances, Latin music, and many others. We pride ourselves on our ability to adapt our program to the music that the audience will enjoy most.
Events at which we've played recently include ballroom dances, music festivals, weddings, birthday parties, holiday parties, commemorations, adult community concerts, and much more.
