Fantastic! This group is stunning. They are extremely talented, proffesional and put on an unbelievably great show. I highly recommend this band! Approximately 20 members in this band and they are very organized and clearly know their business. Their male and female vocalist are both awesome. They will be the talk of our town for some time to come, I have already had several inquiries from folks who want Swing Machine for their next event(s). I would definitely hire them again!

Read the "Who's Who" of our Group Members listed above. And if one of them is not available for a gig, our "substitute" list is just as impressive. Frankly, the list is MUCH larger, but there's only a limited number of slots to list the names!
