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.
Rooted in Philadelphia, The Swinging Foxes deliver tight boogie-woogie, sultry vocal jazz, and sassy rhythm & blues. Their swinging rhythms and bluesy grooves will woo you in while Amber Rae, the powerhouse front woman, swaggers confidently above. Rae's delivery of pure authentic emotion and smoky vocal tones intertwine with the bands halting guitar licks and colliding horn riffs, giving their audience a vibrant and riveting performance. They will lead you on a striking romp through the sounds of the 40's and '50's. Deliciously and unabashedly retro, The Swinging Foxes are full-on spontaneity, sass and class!
The Foxes have been invited to perform at many of the regions premiere venues and festivals. Including The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Berks Jazz Festival along with a variety of other music and arts festivals in the greater Philadelphia area.
