Fantastic! This group is stunning. They are extremely talented, proffesional and put on an unbelievably great show. I highly recommend this band! Approximately 20 members in this band and they are very organized and clearly know their business. Their male and female vocalist are both awesome. They will be the talk of our town for some time to come, I have already had several inquiries from folks who want Swing Machine for their next event(s). I would definitely hire them again!

The band delivered what I wanted, a great mix of traditional swing band dance music and contemporary "listening" jazz. Great soloists, and great vocals. Swing Machine is EXACTLY what they say they are, a group of professional musicians that sound like the samples that are posted on the web site. We will be using them on a regular basis in the club.
