This photograph was taken one evening in July 1999 on one of the very popular Mr Swing's Summer Cruises.

One of the band's sax players ran a riverside pub in York where Mr Swing's Dance Orchestra used to rehearse. Over a hundred big band fans would gather there before boarding 'HMS Swing' for a two-hour cruise on the Ouse entertained by Mr Swing, much to the envy of green-faced landlubbers cheering from the shore. Afterwards we'd all retire back to the pub for a slap-up buffet.
