||As well as the The Sophisticats trad jazz
line up, Mad Dog also has a stylish live Swing
Band available. Mad Dog’s Little Big Band
traditionally perform a fabulous selection of
swing music as a compact 5 piece group. Most
of the bands performing this kind of music tend
to feature a large number of musicians. This
may not be suitable for many venues, as the
space may not be available to cope with the
stage size necessary for these large orchestras.
With Mad Dog's Little Big Band, you have the
option to match the musicians with the venue.
Additional talented musicians can be added to
suit the space available of course, and to suit
your budget. If you want a stylish swing band
that dress impeccably and have the highest standards
of musicianship, then Mad Dog’s Little
Big Band is the perfect live group to hire.
The live big band jazz swing style was
traditionally made popular thanks to the music
of Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Irvine Berlin
and other great American songwriters. This
music was also popularised by many of the
British and American live Big Bands including
Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman
and Glenn Miller. The songs were also developed
by the amazing vocal talents of singers such
as Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, and of course
Frank Sinatra. However, it’s not just
the Rat Pack aficionados’ that love
this swing style music. There is a new generation
that adore this style. This may well have
something to do with many of the great artists
that have revamped the genre. These include
Jools Holland Big Band, Harry Connick Jnr,
Jamie Cullum, Michael Buble, Westlife and
Robbie Williams. It has also come to more
general attention due to the huge success
of the BBC 1 hit television series Strictly
Outstanding live jazz swing music
and stylish, infectious entertainment is always
the hallmark of the outrageously talented
Mad Dog's Little Big Band.
