About
Swingnuts Jazz—Cool Classics & Snappy Originals

This fun, versatile band is perfect for listening and dancing. Swingnuts Jazz plays high-spirited swing, tango, Brazilian, and hot jazz—favorites and rarities from the 1920s to the 1960s, plus snappy modern originals. When appropriate, the set list includes seasonal selections. By special arrangement, clients can request favorites songs in advance for the band to work up.

Swingnuts Jazz typically plays as a five-piece band with vocals, piano, bass, percussion, sax, flute, and guitar. The band also plays as a trio or quartet. Each player adds a depth of musicality and excitement.

The band generally arrives an hour early to set up, bringing a sound engineer and high quality sound system if necessary. The band provides recorded music during breaks and coordinates with event organizers to support announcements or activities.

Swingnuts build upon our rich all-American jazz heritage, improvising solos to keep classic jazz tunes fresh and immediate. Peggy Wendel's well-crafted originals are written in a variety of traditional jazz styles and cover topics as diverse as life: love, farmers markets, airports, bees, global economics, and Facebook.

This band, Peggy Wendell in particular as that is who I had most of my contact with, was super nice and accommodating. They love playing music and seemed to have as much fun as our guests. They didn't mind coming early to get set up and work around our schedule.

Swingnuts Jazz’s Response:

THanks for your response, Sharon. I was impressed with how well the event was planned and how enthusiastic the students were. So many were dancing; it really paid off that you offered them dance lessons beforehand. —Peggy

We used Swingnuts Jazz for a formal Military Dining Out event. From the very beginning their communication was great. Peggy and the crew worked hard to customize their performance for our event. They went as far as learning aviation related songs to play. The entire audience was thrilled with their performance. They varied the tempo as the night progressed to match the mood of the event. Overall we were HIGHLY satisfied with their performance. I STRONGLY recommend Swingnuts!

Swingnuts Jazz really spiced up our event. They were a lot of fun and very professional. They came early to set up, started on time, and even played a few travel themed songs to go with the classic car show part of the event. Thanks to Gigmasters we found this gem of a band on relatively short notice.
