Swing Dances

Oxford Classic Jazz bands have played for many swing dances, where people joyfully dance the Lindy Hop, Jitterbug and Charleston. The dancers often comment that we get the tempos just right and that the rhythmic intensity of just four professional jazz musicians can provide a hotter, livelier and more spontaneous dance experience than an orchestrated amateur big band or sound system. Just look at some of the comments we have had -

"Just a few words about the past week – Jump Session in Oxford last Saturday was a great evening. So many dancers from all over the place joined together to dance to swing tunes played by THE OXFORD CLASSIC JAZZ BAND. It was well worth the drive down there!"

(email feedback after playing for a dance in Oxford.)


"I had the best time and loved the band – can’t get that meat and old potatoes (something like that) song out of my head. The piano was fab – hope none of you suffered a hernia getting it on stage!" Carol from Buckingham

Dear Nick


I am sorry for the belated note, but I just wanted to say an enormous thank you to you and the band.


Your set was absolutely fantastic was perfect for the occasion. As always, it was a pleasure to listen and dance to you and we will look forward to hearing you again soon and to welcome you back for OLX 2016 if not before!


Best wishes
