Rip-roaring authentic swing played by some of the top jazz musicians on the European and U.S scene.
Welcome to the homepage of SCHW!NG, the hottest new swing band on the scene bringing the music of the 1920's, 30's and beyond to a juke joint, lindyhop or jazz club near you!
MEET THE BAND
First up is the "clarinet king", the "almighty alto", the "tenor temerity" that is reedman Dillon Baiocchi. Hailing from the land of the free, the home of the brave, Dillon brings a slice of Downtown New York to the group with his fat tone, tasty licks and impeccable hipster beard.
Next up is the "six-string wizard", the linchpin of the organisation and all-round dapper gentleman guitarist Mr. Adam Taylor. With an infectious jazz swing that'll keep your feet moving into the early hours and a bonhomie attitude sure to keep the frivolities fresh, this English esquire promises the real deal, authentic swing of the highest order, naturally.
On the bass, holding down the fort and providing the swing carpet for us all to jive on throughout the night is our Austrian ami and brother, Herr. Johannes Fend.
And finally at the traps, putting stick to skin and cymbal is our German time-keeper and drummer extraordinaire Richie Struck. When you feel that vibe, that irresistible swing, you just gotta dance!
And last but not least, la chanteuse!
With the pipes of Ella and the looks of Marilyn, Holly Taylor adds the icing, the cherry and the sparkler to the cake with her disarming jazz vocals. A true performer, as singer/actor you can be sure of a class act from our resident belle of the ball.
Please peruse the cornucopia of curiosity that is our repertoire. We play all of the classic jazz repertoire from the 1920's, 30's and beyond as well as choice popular themes in an authentic swing style.
If you have a specific request for your event which you can't find in our repertoire list please let us know beforehand and we will be more than happy to give a rollicking rendition of your favourite song!
