Swing Fever is dedicated to the music of the Swing Era, playing it as critic Phil Elwood once said, 'as though the numbers are on today's Hit Parade'. The band treats Swing Era music as a living, breathing form to which the musicians bring fresh excitement. Clever, fun, romantic, witty - here is wonderful classic music presented in its full emotional range.

The band has toured and recorded with renowned Count Basie, Duke Ellington, trumpeter Clark Terry, clarinetist Buddy De Franco, saxophonist Tommy Newsom and vibraphonist Terry Gibbs.

Swing Fever has performed at more 1500 weddings and events, the Monterrey Jazz Festival (twice), 4 S.F. Black & White Balls, Mayor Willie Brown's Inauguration. They have toured extensively as well.

Swing Fever does great dinner jazz and swing/ballroom dance music.

We hired Swing Fever for our 10th wedding anniversary party and they were wonderful. They were on time and the sound and music that they provided was awesome. We would hire them again in a heart beat! For all of us who love to dance, they had us dancing and for those who are a little shy about dancing, I noticed a lot of toe tapping. It was a great time!

Having Swing Fever play at my wedding was such a treat. We had two musicians play during cocktail hour and it added an overall tone of fun, and class to our wedding. The musicians brought multiple instruments and played beautifully! They were both very professional and communicating with Paula throughout my planning process was so easy and she always got back to me right away! I would hands down recommend them to anyone wanting talented, professional, courteous, and flexible jazz musicians to play at their event. Thank you, Swing Fever!

The groom was very specific about wanting a jazz/swing band, no DJ, and no vocals. Swing Fever provided exactly what the wedding couple wanted. They worked ahead with the couple on song selection, timing of the evening, and made good suggestions for number of instruments for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. They provided a wonderful sound which helped create and lend itself to the tone of the event. Swing Fever and Paula, the coordinator, were also invaluable about providing sound and microphones for the ceremony. It was also a huge bonus that they have played many events at the wedding venue prior.
