The Sounds of Swing Orchestra recreate the sound of great music from the classic Swing Era of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Woody Herman, Ted Heath, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw and many more.

Expertly led by Band Leader and Saxophonist, Adrian Bullers, and featuring the stunning vocals of Jacqui Hicks (a well respected regular on the pop and jazz scene), this fabulous Big Band features some of the United Kingdom's top musicians.

Every member of the band is a first-class professional musician in their own right. All are actively involved in high profile engagements that include some of the top London West End Shows, Television/Radio Broadcasts and top-selling album projects. Each musician shares the same goal - to achieve a performance that not only pays it's respect to the great Big Bands of the past, but promotes the Big Band sound to today's generation.

The Orchestra was formed in 1977, and has gone from strength to strength, branching out to cover all aspects of the musical entertainment business. Featuring the very best professional musicians and singers, they pride themselves on using this talent to perform the live music of the Big Band era, recreating the exciting sounds of such Big Bands as those led by Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Woody Herman, Harry James, Tommy Dorsey and many others - in their original arrangements, exactly as recorded in the Great Swing Era of the 30's and 40's, with outstanding instrumental and vocal performances.

They have played at a variety of different events, from theatre performances, in cabaret (backing Bobby Davro And Kenny Lynch in a Rat Pack Tribute show), opening nights of West End shows, (The Hot Mikado, Birdy, Always), themed 40's dance nights, corporate entertainment, charity shows, weddings and private parties.

With quality Big Band Swing that will have your feet tapping and fingers clicking, The Sounds of Swing Orchestra does not fail to entertain and delight audiences from around the world.
