That Old Swing Thing Reviews
    They were absolutely awesome. They totally made my party swing. They even let my 76 year old drummer dad have a cameo! I would hire them every year if I could!!! I cannot sing their praises enough. Absolutely brilliantly talented people who deserve to be famous. The whole service was brilliant from start to finish. I'm already thinking of an excuse to get them back!

    Really nice bunch of guys who were really flexible in their approach and conduct throughout the event. Performance was really good and exactly what was expected and adjusted to tone of the event well. Working with them was extremely easy and would come highly recommended for future events.

    After my partner and I had not one but three bands cancel on us for our wedding on 29 July, we thought that we would never find a band that we were happy to have play at our reception. Luckily just as we were about to give up hope, we stumbled across That Old Swing Thing and we are so happy that we did. We were blown away by how well the band played together and their repertoire of songs, they really made our night! Jon and the band exceeded every expectation we had, and we can't recommend them enough to anyone looking for a swing band for their next wedding or event.

    That Old Swing Thing were fantastic; the band were really friendly, they were brilliantly flexible and adaptable, and they added a special magic to our evening. Thank you! Sam, who organised everything, was also brilliant from the beginning of the process to the finish.

    Jason Newing - Corporate Event
    I'd like to say that the That Old Swing Thing did a wonderful job at our wedding. they played wonderfully and everyone enjoyed the music. We especially enjoyed the leonard cohen song dance me to the end of love they so kindly played for us. As far as practicalities go everything was perfect. I can add that as the speeches over-ran they had to start late and didnt mind. They were flexible and as a result everyone had a wonderful time.

    That Old Swing Thing were fantastic. Not only was the music great, but they were extremely friendly and accomodating. They did a great job and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to others.
    ★★★★★
    Andrew Liddle - Wedding
    Great variety of tunes also ensuring interest between each (no two similar tracks next to each other within the set for example) and vocalists comfortable with addressing the audience. Set up was fast and sound checked with minimal 'level tweaking' to a point nobody really noticed them until they kicked off for real. Folks dancing with them in the second set. A very good band and I was overjoyed with the performance, would highly recommend to anyone who asks.
