Snape Maltings Concert Hall
Down for the Count Swing Orchestra play Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and more
Join the 12-piece mini big band Down for the Count Swing Orchestra for ‘one hellova celebration of vintage music’ (TimeOut London) as they celebrate the Legends of Swing. Expect to hear instrumental songs from Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Count Basie and Glenn Miller, and vocal classics from singers such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat ‘King’ Cole.
The band recreates classic tunes from the swing era, but there’s more to it than nostalgia – each song is performed with Down with the Count’s own unmistakable style, breathing new life into wonderful music. With brilliant instrumental solos, sublime vocal performances, irresistible humour and joie de vivre, the show leaves you feeling uplifted and wanting more.
This performance will last approximately 85 minutes.
