Live music events

Don't miss our legendary live music nights! The connection between live music and swing dancing is steeped in history. As the dance evolved in the ballrooms of 1920s and 30s Harlem, the dancers and musicians inspired each other. It was at The Savoy that the best dancers took Lindy hop to its greatest heights, driven on by - and in turn influencing - the finest jazz musicians of the great Big Bands on the two alternating bandstands.

At Swingland we believe in supporting good live music and we put on live bands at our nights as often as costs allow.

We only book bands that really swing - comprised of some of the very best of today's musicians, many of them regulars in West End shows, all highly regarded in the world of jazz and swing.
