Swingin' Bill's Vintage Revue Swingin’ Bill’s Vintage Revue For your next booking why not consider Swingin’ Bill’s Vintage Revue? We're an energetic, original and highly entertaining six-piece musical act that appeals to all ages, covering classic songs written by the likes of Louis Prima, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Jordan, Jackie Wilson, Nina Simone, Cab Calloway and Ray Charles. Over the course of decades spent in the music business the band's members have played everywhere from village halls to stages at all of the big festivals, and have both provided support for and played with a number of big name acts. The music we play is a mixture of jumping jive, rhythm ‘n’ blues, swing, boogie-woogie and jazz standards (with dashes of rock ‘n’ roll, ragtime and even the odd showtune thrown in to leaven the mix), and is bound to get your audience smiling, tapping their toes, and singing along. LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL! Here is a selection of the feedback we have received from promoters: "Thank you for giving us a fantastic fun night out. On a wet and windy night there was a great audience, many of whom had travelled 40 miles or more to attend the first Aberjazz event of 2022. The show was vibrant, funny and very entertaining with quirky versions of familiar songs including jazz standards and fifties rock ‘n roll. A large part of the audience was made up dancers who relished the opportunity to strut their stuff to a live band, much to the delight of the non-dancers who had the pleasure of watching these great dancers while at the same time enjoying an exceedingly engaging band." Alice Stronghold, organiser of Aberjazz Festival and Night Out promoter "Should you want to have a great evening's entertainment, you need to look no further than Swingin' Bill's Vintage Revue. They are great fun, play a wide range of music and will soon have the audience's feet tapping and singing along with them. I have no hesitation in recommending them." John Rowlands B.E.M., Chair of Hood Memorial Hall, Devauden "We had Swingin’ Bill’s Vintage Revue play for us at our dance in Pembroke Dock. They were absolutely brilliant! They kept the dance floor going all night long. We look forward to asking them to come back and play for us again soon." Gerald Bowen, event organiser for Pembrokeshire Jive & Lindy and Night Out promoter "We had a great night with Swingin' Bill's Vintage Revue. It was brilliant to see so many people having a good time in the Community Centre!" Amanda Lowndes, organiser for Ffrith and Llanfynydd Community Association and Night Out promoter "Fantastic band. They kindly came to play for our elderly residents and they loved it, some of them even getting up for a boogie ... Great sound and the vocalist is amazing." Bella Woodfield, event organiser for the St Isan Care Home, Cardiff ABOUT THE PERFORMER We're a highly entertaining and unusual six-piece musical act that appeals to all ages. In various combinations our members have played everywhere from small village halls in the wild west of Wales to stages at Cambridge Folk Festival, Bestival, Boomtown and Glastonbury. The music we play is a mixture of jumping jive, rhythm ‘n’ blues, swing, boogie-woogie and jazz (with odd dashes of rock ‘n’ roll and skiffle thrown in to leaven the mix), and we always get our audience singing along and tapping their toes; in fact, our interpretations of the songs of the likes of Louis Prima, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Jordan, Nina Simone and Ray Charles have been known to get more than a few people up and dancing too!
