The Lambeth Swing

Return to Previous Page

The Lambeth Swing presents the very best of Swing Jazz – all of the tried-and-tested favourites are included in the mix – think ‘Fly Me To The Moon’, ‘Mack The Knife’, ‘Cheek To Cheek’ and ‘The Way You Look Tonight’. This exceptional ensemble performs the ‘Ratpack’ greats and a sparkling selection of other equally well-known jazz standards in a ritzy style to add glamour to any occasion and really make the party swing!

“The dulcet tones of Lambeth’s fine baritone conjure up the iconic magic of Sinatra…”

Tasty guitars and jaunty double-bass hold down the rhythm and flesh out the harmonic patterns and textures, giving the overall performance an infectious lilt, bringing an immediate smile to the lips. Smooth riffs and licks from saxophone round off the instrumental sound, and vocals come courtesy of James Lambeth, Bath’s premier jazz crooner! The dulcet tones of Lambeth’s fine baritone conjure up the iconic magic of Sinatra in a well-observed performance that is both elegant and energetic, transporting you back to that glamorous era when romance was always in the air.

From a vocals/guitar duo to a quintet featuring two guitars stepping out in style, The Lambeth Swing can readily tailor the size of the band to suit the size of the party. The band comes fully-equipped with a high-quality PA system which produces a crystal-clear sound in venues of all types.

Add the silver-screen glitz and glamour of the unforgettable Swing Jazz Era to your wedding, birthday or anniversary with The Lambeth Swing!

    Just wanted to say a big thank you 45th St Swing coming and to play at The Affordable Art Fair in Bristol, they were all fantastic and very well received. The band added a real touch of class to the event.
