Yes, we can do 1920's parties!
"Upbeat jazz sets the stage. Classical nuances add drama. A touch of pop brings zest and spunk, while French undertones and Brazilian beat give the music an exotic flare." --Loveland Reporter Herald, July, 2011
In addition to their extensive public performance schedule, Swing Je T'aime is still accepting private bookings as a 5/6/7-piece headline ensemble for all occasions, in any locale. Smaller events may book a 4-piece instrumental combo.
"Our music is a listener-friendly blend including fresh takes on classic favorites; unburied treasures; and innovative, original songs. We are a swing band, unconfined. Our primary influences include legendary two-fingered trailblazer Django Reinhardt and his Hot Club of France; the genre-bending "little orchestra" from Portland, Pink Martini; and accessible polystylism. While our performances are musically satisfying to the master's- and doctorate- level professionals in our ensemble, each song is crafted with the goal of maintaining a general accessibility. Through our exciting shows which uniquely balance musical familiarity and newness, we have achieved a rare level of multi-generational appeal.
Swing Je T'aime is exclusively for everyone!"
- composer/director/guitarist Aaron Walker
Book the full band at your venue for a show ticket buyers will talk about long after! Most frequent feedback from theaters is that the headline shows are "so special!" and the band always comes away with new, lasting fans.
With exciting, multi-cultural performances that have such a strong cross-generational appeal, Swing Je T'aime's music is ideal for setting a celebratory, artistic, accessible tone at public festivals!
While they love to branch out into their brand of quirky polystylism, Swing Je T'aime maintains a reverence for its roots...Swing! So, yes, they can command the room and perform the traditional favorites for an all-night swing dance!
