Ten String Swing specializes in weddings and corporate events; for instance, we regularly perform at Harvard University alumni events. Although we typically play jazz standards, we often perform wedding ceremonies, playing classical guitars and flute, and then afterward switch to acoustic bass and jazz guitar for cocktails and dinner. We work closely with clients to be assure their complete satisfaction.

We will also expand to a trio or a quartet by adding another woodwind player and a drummer for dancing. We may also add a singer, and our bassist and saxophonist double on vocals, too. Our cocktail and dinner repertoire consists of classic jazz, Latin, and easy listening pop background music; for ceremonies we offer the traditional favorites for processionals and recessionals, and popular selections by Bach, Rameau, Handel, Beethoven, Telemann and Mozart.

For cocktails and dinner, composers like Gershwin, Cole Porter and Jerome Kern are well represented, as are the Beatles, Stevie Wonder and Latin composer Jobim. We also play more "straight-up" jazz like Miles Davis, Chick Corea, and Pat Metheny when the occasion calls for it. Jazz lovers are pleasantly surprised when we turn into a hard-swinging band after a polite set of Mozart, Bach and Handel!

Guuitarist Rich Falco, is Director of Jazz Studies at WPI. Bassist/flutist/guitarist Matt Brown has played and taught in New England for years, and was a member of the Marty Gilman Band. Saxophonist/flutist Jim Allard is a faculty member at Clark University. Additional members of the group are long-time associates with whom we perform frequently.

Ten String Swing was exactly what my daughter wanted for her wedding reception! Their music was contemporary yet laid back in style. Despite bad weather, the musicians took great effort to attend the reception, and the guests were delighted! I would definitely hire this ensemble again. They were professional, great communicators, and accomodating, not to mention affordable. Thanks, 'Ten String Swing'!!!
