Take your audience back to the roaring 20s and let them experience the magic of an umbrella floating through the air and as if gravity doesn’t exist!
Perfect for 1920es or Great Gatsby themed events.

Enthusiasts of good-looking swing, The Swing Collective offer modern songs rearranged into hip-shaking, jump-jiving funk and swing.

Pleasantly professional, well presented and adaptive they entertain all ages as background or foreground entertainment.
