Voices of Swing

The 28-piece swing orchestra and vocalists present a sonic ride back to the sounds of Capitol Studios in the 1950s as they play timeless classics from The Great American Songbook.

Expect to hear hits such as I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Stardust, ‘S Wonderful and many more in a joyful celebration of some of the best music of the 20th Century, all performed by some of the UK’s top emerging musicians and arrangements under the baton of musical director Mike Paul-Smith.

Composers such as George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael and Irving Berlin transformed the art of popular song in the first half of the 20th Century, providing the material that would spring artists such as Frank Sinatra, Nat ‘King’ Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Judy Garland and many more to international stardom. Down for the Count preserve and protect the musical heritage of these unforgettable songs, whilst also looking to the future by presenting original arrangements of classic standards written by members of the orchestra.
