Legends of Swing...

Join the Down for the Count Swing Orchestra for “one hellova celebration of vintage music” (TimeOut London) as they celebrate the Legends of Swing at The Apex on 17 January.

 

Down for the Count are a mini big band with an electrifying show full of incredible energy and musicianship. Described as “a breath of fresh air on the swing scene” they are now regularly found at jazz clubs such as Ronnie Scott’s London and Le Caveau de la Huchette Paris, at festivals including London Jazz Festival, and on BBC Radio.

 

The band recreate classic tunes from the Swing Era, performing each song in their own distinctive style and breathing new life into the best vintage music. Combine that with the band’s top-class instrumental solos, sublime vocal performances, and irresistible humour and joie de vivre, and you get a show that will leave you feeling uplifted and wanting more.

 

“Awesome!!!” - Michael Bublé

 

Their new album, “Swing That Music”, features the music of the big bands of the 1930s and 1940s – so you can expect to hear songs from the likes of Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Count Basie and Glenn Miller, and classics from singers such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat ‘King’ Cole.

 

Down for the Count Swing Orchestra will play two reduced-capacity concerts on Sunday 17 January, at 3pm and 7.30pm. To ensure your safety and remain within government guidelines, seating will be at socially distanced tables in the stalls & seats in the balcony.
