Swing Machine

Jazz by the Waterfront

Swing Machine is an Ipswich-based big band recreating the much-loved sounds of the 30s, 40s and 50s. Our members, all enthusiasts of the genre, came together to play the music we love, and since those early days the band has gone from strength to strength, attracting quite a following along the way. While our extensive repertoire is rooted in the Swing Era, we do include modern arrangements in our programmes. We can also incorporate a wide variety of dances and our popular Ballroom and Latin events include Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Jive, Cha-cha-cha, Rumba, Tango, Samba, Salsa, etc.

Our forte, of course, is swing music and we take great delight in bringing to our audiences the music of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Ted Heath, Woody Herman, Duke Ellington and Stan Kenton et al. We have two top-class vocalists who perform both individually and as a duo, covering songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Bublé, Harry Connick Jr., etc. Also complementing the band are some fabulous soloists who add the ‘icing on the cake’ to the arrangements.
