Swing 42 at Worcester Music Festival
Swing 42: Giving good songs, including the old standards, a jazzy feel. The kind of sound you could sit outside or inside to listen to. Band name comes from a Django tune although we have now widened our repertoire.
Genre: cafe jazz
We have made progress recently towards a style and sound which we feel creates an easy listening atmosphere. Locally we started as an Irish Band then went to Country and now our own jazzy style. Over the years we have played regularly around Droitwich and the line-up has varied. During our Irish period we were booked for the Worcester Beer Festival as Duty Free in the year of the great flood! We are currently looking for a residency in the Droitwich ,Worcester area where we could maybe start some kind of jazz club. We play for pleasure but expenses are always welcome. We can basically play for as long as you wish. Although not on Youtube, we would be happy to audition if required.
