Mr Swing’s Dance Orchestra performs classic swing band songs from the radio broadcasts of the thirties, through the Glenn Miller sound of the forties to the Rat-pack days of the fifties and beyond. Well-known big band tunes made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Andy Williams, Tom Jones and Neil Diamond and more recently revived by Harry Connick Jnr, Robbie Williams and Michael Bublé.
The focal point of Mr Swing’s Dance Orchestra is undoubtedly its vocalist. Phil Chapman has had a love of big band music all his life – an affection very apparent in his performances.
