Remember when a popular tune was one you could hum? Remember when dance music made your feet tap and your hips sway? Well come along, slip on your dancing shoes and move to the beat of a soulful swing music performance, or simply relax and let your mind take a journey down memory lane.

Join the Simply Swing Band and Singers and imagine you’re there! With hits from famous artists including Glen Miller, Benny Goodman Peggy Lee, Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick Jnr, Robbie Williams and Michael Buble all performed by some of the greatest musicians and vocalists in East Anglia, taking you through the generations of Swing from pre-war to the modern day.

A History of Swing is more than just a live band, it is a professional production with clever visual graphics to enchant and melodies to lift the soul.

There’s something for every generation to enjoy, from the glittering costumes, stunning vocals and the virtuoso musicians – some of the UK’s finest. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your tickets while you can, and boogie-woogie with Simply Swing.

Remember…It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing!
