The Swinging Bass Band has played at a wedding in Arthingworth, Northamptonshire

We played at a great wedding in June at a private house in Arthingworth, Northamptonshire. It was a relaxed informal event, in a marquee, and at a super location.
We played our mix of Sinatra and the great swing tunes. They loved Rock and Roll set too – and of course New York, New York!
And the next gig for our trumpeter is at Glastonbury!!
Here are a few photos from the afternoon: –

A Summer Wedding in Leicester







A few months ago The Swinging Bass Band played at a wonderful summer wedding party in a marquee which was in the garden of the bride’s parent’s home. There were over 100 guests who enjoyed the summer afternoon weather before moving into the marquee.

The band began with You Make Me Feel So Young, Fly Me To The Moon and Come Fly With Me. When the bride and groom were ready we played their first dance, Dusty Springfield’s I Only Want To Be With You. We often are asked for Let There Be Love and Moondance so we played these and soon after some from Michael Bublé.

It was not long before it was right to include some pop covers, Isn’t She Lovely and Lovely Day, Mustang Sally, Good Times and Get Down On It. The guests were in the party mood and loved Mack The Knife, Jailhouse Rock and Rocking All Over The World.

The last hour was provided by a DJ friend who kept the party going.
