The Get Downs

  • 6-piece party band performing swing and soul favourites
  • A smaller version of our main band, the Down for the Count Swing and Soul Band
  • A great set list that appeals to audiences of all ages
  • The perfect option for events with a tight budget

The Get Downs are a smaller version of our main band, the Down for the Count Swing & Soul Band. Just like our main function band, The Get Downs perform a great mix of swing and soul music that is popular with audiences all ages, and is great at getting people up and dancing at wedding receptions and private parties.

We know that at weddings you need to carefully manage your budget, which is why we’ve made The Get Downs - a smaller version of our main party band.

Made up of the same fantastic professional musicians as our larger band, The Get Downs deliver a fantastic, energetic performance that will get your guests on the floor from the first song to the last.

It’s often possible to “upgrade” to a larger line-up closer to your event if your budget allows, and if you decide you’d like to take advantage of the larger repertoire list, and the fuller, punchier sound delivered by the larger band.

The Get Downs consist of female vocals, piano, bass, drums, trumpet and tenor saxophone – and the band also available as part of our wedding music packages, meaning you can have great live musical entertainment throughout your whole wedding day. At some events, it's possible to swap one of the horn players for a guitarist depending on your song preferences.
