Amber Rae and her band were absolutely fantastic. Their style and their sound were perfect for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with their professionalism and their performance. From their instrumental set during cocktail hour, to their more low key songs earlier in the reception, to their more upbeat bluesy/funky tunes later on in the party, they read the room perfectly. Neither I nor my friends have ever danced so much at a wedding. They even got an encore chant! If you are looking for a very talented band that plays good jazz/blues/swing and can really pick the tempo if if that is what you want, this is your band. I could not recommend them more.

It was such a pleasure having The Swinging Foxes perform at our recent party.The band really knew how to read the crowd and knew exactly what to play based on the energy in the room.They set the tone perfectly and by the end the party was hoppin! It was so nice to feel relaxed as the host and feel confident that the band was maintaining the flow of the party.We were so impressed.Their performance was like a musical journey that combined swinging arrangements and tight rhythms from standards right up to contemporary songs.The group as a whole was especially accommodating, professional and quite entertaining as our guests thoroughly enjoyed. We Loved them! -Jeff

The band was absolutely phenomenol. They were very accomodating with our requests and our budget. My husband and I prepared a dance for our song and the band was able to make on the fly adjustments to ensure we were able to complete our routine. Something you'd never get with a DJ. It was perfect! Everyone loved the music and we continue to get compliments even months after the wedding. Amber Rae has an amazing voice and their sweet jazz was perfect for our outdoor wedding. Many of the guests, young and old, took advantage of the timeless music and really enjoyed dancing. I couldn't have asked for a better performer. I highly recommend them for any occasion.
