Performing Swing Music Classics From The Big Band Era

The Upbeat Swing Orchestra performs swing dance classics from the Big Band Jazz Era. We are a professional 17-piece Big Band with vocalists performing the best-selling hits from Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Harry James, Woody Herman, Stan Kenton, etc. We use vocal arrangements made famous by Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Bob Eberly, Nat King Cole, among others.

Our book also includes Latin and modern jazz music. Our extensive library is based on hundreds of original arrangements printed in the Swing Era and on transcriptions from original recordings. You won't find a more musically authentic swing band than this.

We believe in using our music to contribute to the community, and do perform charity work for accredited charities (with Tax ID number) based on our availability.
