Swingtime Big Band

Dedicated to the performance of America’s greatest popular standards, Swingtime Big Band is a 20-piece authentic swing band comprised of master interpreters of music from the Swing Era (mid-1930’s through early 1950’s).

Hailed by Newsday as “Long Island’s leading professional big band...dedicated to the Great American Songbook,” the ensemble specializes in performing Big classics as originally recorded, bringing to life the style and the spirit of this uniquely American music for today’s audiences to experience in living color. In recognition of the band’s efforts in “perpetuating, promoting & performing with integrity the sounds of the Big Band Era,” SWINGTIME was officially recognized by the Big Band Hall of Fame in 2007 as “Ambassadors of Big Band Music.”

SWINGTIME thrills concert audiences and Ballroom dancers alike with authentic recreations of the timeless swing music of such great Big Band leaders as Count Basie, Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Harry James, Woody Herman, Les Brown, Charlie Barnet and Stan Kenton, among many others. Such swing classics can be heard on the band’s latest CD— IN LIVING COLOR, which is a compilation of recent live concert performances, as a follow-up to the band’s best-selling debut disc, LIVE...FROM NEW YORK.

“Musicians who make the sounds of the pre-rock era rock.”
