Down for the Count Swing Orchestra on Sunday 15th March 2020

With a stunning and energetic show described by TimeOut London as “one hellova celebration of vintage music”, audiences can expect an unforgettable night of top-class instrumental solos, sublime vocal performances, and irresistible humour and joie de vivre.

Down for the Count have quickly earned themselves a reputation as one of the hardest swinging bands in the UK, and last year sold out shows at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, The London Jazz Festival, Le Caveau de la Huchette in Paris, and had their first album “Let’s Dance” featured on Clare Teal’s BBC Radio 2 show.

The band’s third album “Swing That Music” will be released in September 2019 and accompanies the band’s tour of theatres and jazz clubs at cities across the UK including Torquay, alongside London, Wakefield and Winchester.

The 11-piece mini big band will re-create classic tunes from the likes of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Glenn Miller, performing each song in their own unmistakeable style with expert musicianship.

Led by pianist and arranger Mike Paul-Smith, the band comprises a group of expert musicians, many of whom are trained at top UK conservatoires and universities.

Music Genres: 

Big Band, Jazz, Soul, Swing
