As a Wedding Band:

Wedding Band Leicester proudly presents The Swinging Bass.
The Swinging Bass are able to perform at your wedding during any afternoon events, and also for the reception. Generally they break into their trio of sax, keyboard, and double bass to provide more relaxed background music for daytime functions while providing a full size band for the more lively and upbeat evening parties. The band will learn your choice of first dance song as standard included with their hire – you can fully discuss this with the band at the time of booking.

The band have their own, fully PAT Tested, PA system which they will bring with them to the wedding, suitable for providing great sound to an audience of up to 250 people and the band are happy to use this indoors or outdoors. The band also say that their music will never be so loud that you guests can’t enjoy themselves. They will also bring a flood lighting rig for the stage when they are performing with both the 5 or 6-piece band.

Thank you all so so much for playing at our wedding. You were absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have ask for more. The drinks reception was fantastic with the Trio pitching it just right by providing a lovely background and just the right volume so our guests could talk! Then the band got us all going and we were so thrilled to see so many of our guests on the dance floor (many of whom we have never seen dancing before!). You really made the day so special for us both.” – Craig and Nicky



The Swinging Bass play an array of great classic swing, jazz and pop songs, covering all the bases needed to please everyone at your wedding. Their experience as a wedding band means they know exactly how to roll out a stunning performance, generally finding that an evening performance works well by starting off with some of the great smooth songs of Michael Bublé, Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, before loosening up and playing their big hitting pop covers.

Their repertoires differ between the different band sizes, with just some of the choices available from their 3 piece setup being “Fly Me To The Moon” (Frank Sinatra) and “Just You, Just Me” (Nat King Cole). Some of the songs within the full size band’s repertoire include “New York, New York” (Frank Sinatra), “Jailhouse Rock” (Elvis Presley), “Mustang Sally” (The Commitments) and “Moondance” (Van Morrison).
