The Swing Commanders is a stunningly vibrant and versatile group that performs an exciting mix of 1940s classics, boogie-woogie, western swing, 50’s jump jazz and more!

Every member of the Swing Commanders sings and plays at least one instrument, sometimes three, Yet what makes them stand out even above their incredible music ability and performing skills is their joie-de-vivre.

Every performance is imbued with a huge sense of fun; warmth and infectious humour suffuse every concert through the performers’ actions, wit and repartee on stage.

It is rare enough to find a band whose members’ talents are so considerable; rarer still to find one so at ease with itself and with the audience. The Swing Commanders are truly a joy to behold, and deserve every success that comes their way.
— Richard Harris, composer
