Oscar’s Swing Jazz Band

Return to Previous Page

Songs from the great Broadway shows, ‘Ratpack’ classics immortalised by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Co together with rollicking Jump Jive standards are the staple fare of Oscar’s Swing Jazz Ensemble. It’s Vintage Swing Jazz at its very best

“Serving up a musical feast of rhythm and romance, Oscar’s Swing Jazz Ensemble entertains with style and panache…”

Carefully-crafted arrangements are the trademark of the group. Keyboard, saxophone, double-bass and drums, each in turn, are granted their opportunity to step out into the limelight in style as the music unfolds, and it’s all topped off by delectable vocals, with a choice of either male or female singer to front the performance. Impeccably presented and with a well-balanced repertoire, the stageshow dramatically evokes the glamour of Hollywood between the wars. It’s a sparkling and warm musical presentation that sets toes tapping and rapidly fills the dancefloor.

Smartly dressed in Vintage 1930’s style, the band comes complete with a high-quality PA system which produces an excellent sound in venues large and small. With their polished approach, playing such a broad and attractive repertoire of timeless classics, Oscar’s Swing Jazz Ensemble is a great choice for a wedding reception, family party or social event.

From Jump Jive to ‘Ratpack’ classics, Sinatra-style, Oscar’s Swing Jazz Ensemble will wow the crowd – they mix an intoxicating musical brew.

    Jane's Wedding Reception

    October 1, 2015 - 7:47 pm

    I am so glad that Oscar’s Swing Jazz Band played at our wedding reception. We chose them for the range of music in their songlists, but hadn’t expected the band to be quite so versatile. Over at least 4 decades of music, they seemed to know exactly what to play to put a smile on every face, which is always a worry at weddings where the age group is so wide, but from the ages of 11 to 97 everyone loved the dancing! We would all wholeheartedly recommend them.

    Just wanted to say a quick thank you for Thursday night, everyone was commenting on how much fun they had, and how much they enjoyed the band. It was lovely to see everyone up and dancing and the songs you played were perfect. I’ll definitely be recommending you to colleagues!
