The act is based in Stroud, Gloucestershire but can travel around Wales and the South of England.
The Honeymoon Swing Dance Band is made up of very experienced musicians and entertainers able to talk to an audience as well as charm them with nostalgic songs, vocal harmonies and gentle jazz arrangements.
Usually dressed in period clothes for the pre-war era and much in demand to evoke the memories of senior citizens, or fire with nostalgia the growing number of enthusiasts for all things vintage. The band is very well received at vintage dance festivals having played Twinwood and others the last couple of years, and for smaller family celebrations. Willing to travel in the south of the UK for bigger events but happy to play closer to home in south Gloucestershire for smaller functions.
The band play songs from the 1920s through to the end of the second world war in a Jazz style reminiscent of the great crooners from that era from Britain and the USA. The swing band play a similar repertoire with bass and drums and swing the tunes a little more for dancing . Ideal for the popular resurgence of Lindy Hop, collegiate shag and balboa, as well as the ballroom favourites.
