Corporate Christmas party entertainment with Down for the Count swing and soul band

Cell Medica's office Christmas party with Down for the Count

The company had chosen a 1920's Speakeasy-theme for their Christmas party, so they booked our vintage Swing Orchestra line-up to provide entertainment in central London.

We played a range of 1920s Charleston and swing music to entertain the guests during their drinks reception, and after dinner upped the tempo with a range of swing, soul and Motown music for dancing.
