SWING | JIVE | SOUL | MOTOWN | POP | PARTY BAND
The Get Downs is a swing and soul band available for hire for functions in the UK and internationally.
The Get Downs is Down for the Count's original line-up - formed in 2005, it is now one of the most popular swing and soul bands in the UK. The band is constantly in demand for functions, wedding receptions and corporate events. Our previous clients include Ferrari, BMW, Triumph, Virgin, Lindt and Bentley and we have performed throughout the world, from Paris to Morocco.
The band plays a huge range of music from the swing, soul and Motown eras, great at getting audiences of all ages up and dancing. The band goes down fantastically at wedding receptions or any other event where you want to get your guests dancing.
The band has a wide and varied repertoire list, meaning there is something for everyone in each performance. We play classic big band swing music from artists such as Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, and soul and Motown music from Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin. You can also expect to hear modern pop songs from the likes of Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars and Paolo Nutini.
We also perform sensational Israeli dancing music for Jewish weddings, bat and bar mitzvahs - find out more here!
Each and every song the band performs has been custom-written for the band and every note you hear is live - unlike many bands we don't use click tracks or backing tracks. This gives our band a fantastic sound that really makes it stand out from the crowd.
This band has performed at exclusive events throughout the UK and abroad, and was recently described as "exceptional" by Deborah Meaden (BBC's Dragon's Den).
