The band is based in Brighton, East Sussex and perform throughout the South East of England.
Swing's The Thing big band is a suavely arranged ensemble that brings all the sounds of a large scale big band into a compact 8 piece jazz ensemble. Led by Chris Coull, an arranger and jazz composer, the band play a wide variety of big band classics. With over 150 arrangements, their repertoire is suitable for everything from dancing, to background dinner sets and everything in between.
Chris is a trumpeter and pianist as well as being a band leader for 15 years. The importance of professionalism, timeliness, dress codes and flexibility are as key to him as musically adept bandsmanship that can just as easily enthrall and excite as it can blend into the backdrop of any high society function.
The band is available at its full size or with various smaller combinations depending on specific client needs.
