Swing Cafe is a high-class acoustic swing, jazz, and rockabilly band that plays around New England at parties, clubs and concerts. Combining lead and harmony vocals, archtop guitar, mandolin, saxophone/clarinet, double bass and drums, Swing Cafe's music is welcome addition to any function. Swing Cafe can also appear as a trio ( guitar. mandolin, bass, with lead and harmony vocals) or as a duo with guitar and mandolin, also including lead and harmony vocals.

Swing Cafe was described by one client as " a great wedding band that doesn't sound like a typical wedding band", and were called "The best band we've ever had here" by the management of the Putney Inn in Putney ,Vermont in August 2008. While Swing Cafe knows a wide variety of upbeat, danceable songs, the band's acoustic instrumentation keeps the volume at comfortable levels and enhances the fun and infectious rhythms of the music . Swing Cafe's sax and clarinet player, Billy Novick, is one of the most respected horn men in the country, and frequently preforms at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Other members of the band have toured internationally with the US Air Force Jazz band, and have recently performed at Carnegie Hall.

Swing Cafe's presentation is both professional and relaxed. The band is fastidiously punctual, and always willing to accommodate a client's special requests, and travels with their own state-of-the-art sound system. At the same time, the band's smooth stage presence and often humorous audience repartee helps to break the ice and get people into the spirit of the show.

The Swing Cafe was terrific at our party. The music was great, very appropriate for dinner and dancing. Played wonderful Klezmer and other stuff. Nice folks, very energetic. We could not have been happier. We had a lot of musicians at the party who gave them a lot of compliments. If we ever have another event of this size, we would try to schedule the Swing Care again.

We absolutely loved this band! They are excellent musicians and worked with us to design a set list for the varied tastes of our guests. They did a really good job of moving between a wide range of musical styles. Everyone from age 3 to 83 got up and danced. We would hire them again in a heartbeat. We can't recommend them enough.
