Full Description
A fabulous, female-fronted, five-piece swing band. The best songs from the last 100 years. From 1920s classic jazz tracks right up to modern pop covers - a selection that will delight all your guests. Iconic swing numbers and ratpack classics; Disney family favourites; blues and rock'n'roll; to 80s-til-now pop gems; Tiger Town Swing Band has a song list that everyone will love. (Give us a shout for a copy of our song list!) We'll tailor our performance to your preference: • choose a first dance from a long list of classic tracks • let us know your favourite songs from our repertoire, and we'll make sure we include them! • set-up times, performance times, durations, background music • from the moment we rock up to the last piece we pack down, we're there to help your party go with a swing. We often play a first set of more laid-back, toe-tappin', finger-snappin' songs, as your evening guests arrive, get a drink and mingle; then a jumping second set designed to get everyone on the dancefloor! But everybody's wedding is different, and we're very happy to find the best approach for *your* party. Of course, we'll also respond to the room and the guests, and know when to hit the party button! Tiger Town Swing Band is a group of top-drawer, professional musicians, all experienced in co-operating with venues and your other suppliers to ensure a smooth and hiccup-free party. Whether you also have a DJ, or you use our PA for your playlist free of charge; whether you want us set up beforehand or just before we play; it's all cool with us. We bring our own PA equipment and lighting, all safety-tested; we have public liability cover, but also have a keen awareness of safe practice, so that we won't need it! Call us for a song list, have a browse - and see what happens when Frank Sinatra and Queen, Louis Armstrong and Paulo Nutini all turn up at your wedding party! :-D

I'll recommend you to everone!
Everyone thought you were fab! Everyone was coming to me saying they'd loved the band and asking who you were. First dance was incredible - and your last song, couldn't have been more perfect!

Travel Notes

We'll go wherever you need us to go! Within 100 miles of Cardiff, our travel is part of the price. Over 100 from Cardiff, we might charge a small amount to cover the extra travel expenses. More than three hours from Cardiff, and we'd need to charge for hotel rooms too (Travelodge, not Hilton!), so that we can stay safe by driving home the next day. But wherever you need some Tiger Town Swing, we'll be there!

What is your most memorable wedding?

My own, obviosuly! 😁 I couldn't resist the temptation to play at my own wedding party - so it was First Dance, then jump behind the drums to get the party going. We had a friend DJ for us too though, so that I had plenty of time to dance with my new wife as well. 💕

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Sassy and swingin', classy and classic - and danceable!

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fact that we care! It's a real honour being asked to play at someone's wedding, and we each take that responsibility seriously. That, and the quality of the musicians - they're a top-notch bunch!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

It's all about you two! Yes, if you want fine food and great music and doves and a doughnut wall, go for it - there's plenty of choice, it can be great fun. But the most important thing is your commitment to each other, and sharing the joy of it with your nearest and dearest. :)

Describe your typical process with a couple.

If you like what you've seen and heard: 1 - Give us a shout with a date. We will keep it for you, and we can talk about what you’re after for your party. 2 - Pay a deposit within one month of booking the band. 3 - Discuss a first dance, favourite songs to include, timings, etc. 4 - Pay the balance a week before the date. 5 - Have an awesome party!

What is your number one floor-filler?

Ooh, hard to say, it changes from one party to the next. But we do have a soft spot for songs that get everyone singing along too though - "Sweet Caroline" for example, or "I Can't Take My Eyes Off You". It's always fantastic to see everyone up, dancing and singing in a big circle round the bride and groom - Tick, job done! :-D
