Do you want to know the secret to choosing the most entertaining and professional swing band for your event?

The truth is, picking a band online can be really daunting - how can you be sure that you have hired the perfect band for your wedding or party if you haven't had a chance to see their true live performance? A simple test is to see if they have a genuine live performance video. Many showreels will film a band performing to one of their prerecorded tracks that they already made in the studio and the bottom line is that it won't reflect their true on-stage performance or sound.


Want to know the best part?

We have exclusive and professionally-filmed videos on YouTube of our live performances, with no overdubs, or studio trickery. This shows you exactly what our lively on-stage performance looks and sounds like when we play at your wedding or party. Find our swing band YouTube showreel video on our Video and Audio page:

Don’t Turn The Volume Up To 11

There is always the fear that by inviting a live band to play for you, particularly one that includes a drummer, that they are going to be far too loud to be enjoyable. It’s an understandable concern, especially when you know that they are going to be bringing in all sorts of amplifiers and speaker equipment to the performance area, wiring it all up and then being ultimately responsible for setting their own volume level during their performance. It sounds like a receipe for disaster and evokes a scary image of you and your guests being blasted to the back of the room by an invisible wave of volume when they start their first song.

Noise Limiter At The Venue

Almost all of the venues that we perform at have a noise limiter fitted somewhere in the room. They are traditionally the evil nemesis for a band; instantly cutting off the power supply to the stage as soon as the volume level goes over a certain limit, thereby plunging the band mid-song into an embarrassingly awkward silence (and normally darkness too if the stage lights are coming off of the same mains supply).

Comfortable Volume Level

50%

Goosebumps To The Rescue!

Fortunately, we are not a particularly loud band - in fact, a frequent compliment that we receive is just how our volume level and overall sound mix is perfectly set all night. Most of the time we can comfortably forget that there is even a limiter in the room because we remain under the threshold anyway but even if we find that we are close to the brink with a particularly strict limiter, our skill and experience at playing a little quieter ensures that we won’t be suddenly cut-off at your wedding or party. With Goosebumps, we’ll always make sure to keep the music going all night, without any unnecessary interruptions!
