Swing Machine is an Ipswich-based 17 piece big band (including two vocalists) that performs many styles of music. The band has vast experience performing together for over twenty years at many different venues, and brings together a huge repertoire of music from the 1940s to the present day. Their forte is, of course, swing music and they take great delight in bringing to their audiences the music of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Ted Heath, Woody Herman, Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton, etc. Their two top-class vocalists cover songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Michael Buble, Ella Fitzgerald, etc., and complementing the band are some fabulous soloists.
