Setlist

The main set list:

The main set list below details the many swing and jive songs that we perform on a regular basis. Featuring well-known classics from the 1930's and 40's swing era such as 'Minnie The Moocher', 'In The Mood' and 'It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)', to Brian Setzer's 'The Dirty Boogie' from 1998, Paolo Nutini's swingy hit Pencil Full Of Lead from 2009 all the way to some 'post modern-style' numbers where we take modern chart numbers and play them with a swingy twist - our main set offers a unique selection of songs spanning over 80 years! Watch and listen to us performing some of these songs on our video and audio page

 

The rock n roll, funk and soul set: 


Beyond our regular main sets are additional songs that we can perform if your event calls for a bit of extra musical variety. We generally like to select the specific tunes that we play because we have had ten years experience of 'reading' the audience, as well as the dance floor, to gauge the best song order for the event. We can perform some 50's rock 'n' roll hits such as Bill Haley's 'Rock Around The Clock' and Ray Charles 'Mess Around' as well as some intense grooving funk from the likes of James Brown and Stevie Wonder. 

When hiring us for your party, wedding or corporate event, you can rest assured that we will pick the best selection of vintage swing, classic rock 'n' roll and tight funk material to suit the mood and atmosphere. Of course, you are more than welcome to choose a 'wish list' selection of songs from the sets below that you would like us to perform on the night and we will be more than happy to include them.
