Live Swing Music Entertainment   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 Come Dancing.
