Swing That Music: Down for the Count & Swing Dance MK

Join the 12-piece Down for the Count Swing Orchestra for “one hellova celebration of vintage music” (TimeOut London), as they launch their new album “Swing That Music” at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.

Down for the Count are a mini big band with an electrifying show full of incredible energy and musicianship. The band recreate classic tunes from the Swing Era, but this is no mere nostalgia trip – described as “a breath of fresh air on the Swing scene today” (Twinwood Festival), they perform each song in their own unmistakeable style, breathing new life into the best vintage music. Combine that with the band’s top class instrumental solos, sublime vocal performances, and irresistible humour and joie de vivre, and you get a show that will leave you feeling uplifted and wanting more.

Their new album, “Swing That Music”, features the music of the big bands of the 1930s and 1940s - expect to hear songs from the likes of Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Count Basie and Glenn Miller, and classics from singers such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat ‘King’ Cole.

At this event the band will be joined by the dancers from Swing Dance MK, who will give a beginners swing dance lesson at the beginning of the evening. You don’t need any experience or a partner so there’s no excuse not to get involved!

 

“Wow! That was fantastic! You guys are so good.”

David Grant (Vocal coach – Fame Academy, Pop Idol etc)
