Swing That Music: Sutton Coldfield
Our SWING THAT MUSIC tour heads to the Town Hall in Sutton Coldfield.
The Swing That Music Tour 2019-2020
Join the Down for the Count Swing Orchestra and The Swing Era for “one hellova celebration of vintage music” (TimeOut London) – it’s time to Swing That Music!
Down for the Count are a mini big band with an electrifying show full of incredible energy and musicianship. Described as “a breath of fresh air on the swing scene” they are now regularly found at jazz clubs in the UK and abroad (Ronnie Scott’s London, Le Caveau de la Huchette Paris), at festivals including Twinwood Festival and London Jazz Festival, and on BBC Radio.
The band recreate classic tunes from the swing era, but this is no mere nostalgia trip – the band 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.
At this event the band will be joined by the dancers from THE SWING ERA, who will take a short beginner's class at the start of the evening before the band perform. There is no obligation to take part in this lesson - but it's suitable for complete beginners so why not give it a go! You'll also be treated to a performance from The Swing Era's performance troupe THE SUZY Qs.
“Wow! That was fantastic! You guys are so good.”
