About
Swing Assembly is the stylish, sophisticated answer to the modern party band. With a repertoire spanning 80 years, the band mixes the elegance of a swing band with the festivity of contemporary funk, soul, and pop. Featuring two vocalists, six horns, and the hippest rhythm section in the Chicago area, we can go from the most delicate ballad to the funkiest dance tune at the drop of a hat. Let our 11 tuxedoed gentlemen (and one bejeweled chanteuse) provide a touch of splendor to your special event!


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Swing Assembly is an extremely versatile 10 piece band + 2 vocalists that has performed countless weddings, corporate events, and parties. Instrumentation: Drums, Bass Guitar, Guitar, Piano, Bari Sax, Tenor Sax, Alto Sax, 2 Trumpets, Trombone and Vocalists. We play a wide variety of music: Big Band Swing, Blues, R&B, Funk, Latin, Pop/Rock, Disco, Soul, and more. You name it, we got it. We have over 300 songs in our library and still counting! We will tailor our music selection however you'd like it!

We currently perform with 2 vocalists at events. This band is made up of professional musicians in the Chicago land area. The band can site read music very well so we can do un-rehearsed requests! We have a great new state of the art sound system, and like to mic the entire band to get the best mix for the room. We can use our sound system to do a DJ/Live Band mix if desired. In addition, we have a wireless mic for toasts, speeches, or any other memorable part of your event that needs amplification.

We take pride in our 5 star gigmaster rating and have received rave reviews from previous clients. Feel free to send a bid request for more detailed information and pricing!

Swing Assembly was great! They played at my wedding on January 8, 2011 and my guests could not stop talking about how wonderful they were. They play a diverse set, the volume at which they played was perfect and they also acted as MC's at the reception. I would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone who is looking for a band who can do it all. - Mary Anne Grewal

WOW!! What a great band! The music was amazing and everyone had an incredible time. Not only did they perform for our wedding, they played piano for the ceremony and a jazz trio for cocktail hour. Even the staff at the hotel was impressed! Greg was always in contact with me and couldn't have been nicer. If you need to hire an unforgettable band, look no further!

Swing Assembly was AMAZING! No amount of words can provide my sincere gratitude for the remarkable performance by the band. Greg was a joy to work with. His attitude and willingness to accommodate made creating music that would inspire everyone to get up and dance/move around an easy task. I recommend Swing Assembly instead of a DJ any day! The band's desire and inspiration to play made the day amazing! Any event where I need to book music, I shall be contacting Swing Assembly first. Thank you for making everything spectacular!

These guys are awesome! From the moment I sent them an email, they kept in contact and were quick to respond to all my requests. They were amazing even before they actually performed at my wedding reception because the communication went so smooth. At the actual reception on July 10, 2010, they blew everyone away! All my guests kept saying they were the best band they had heard at a wedding. They were perfect! They played everything from swing to blues to disco to pop to the classics--outstanding. They made my night perfect and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. I didn't have to do any of the work, Greg made everything go seamlessly. Thanks Swing Assembly!

Swing Assembly was very professional and talented! I love the music that they played that night and we had such a fun time dancing to their music. They played a wide variety of music too! We had a special song request for our party and they even went all out to find the music score and practice it beforehand so that they could play it during the party! I am very thankful to them for that! Best Band ever!

Greg and the members of Swing Assembly were nothing short of amazing! Greg was friendly and professional. We were so comfortable working with him; you could tell he loves what he does. He just got us. We had a musician for our ceremony and a jazz trio for our cocktail hour. Worth. Every. Penny. They were so accommodating...Greg provided microphones for the ceremony on the fly. The reception was the best we have ever been to. There were people on the dance floor who have not danced in DECADES! It was still packed at midnight! People are still talking about our wedding weeks later. We can't wait to see Swing Assembly perform this summer...we may become groupies!

This band was incredible. They had extremely high energy and did a fantgastic job entertaining at my birthday party. They provided a trio for my cocktail hour and the entire 12 piece band for the rest of the night. No one even realized it was the same group. Both sets were distinct, professional and fantastic. They even had to compete with in another part of the venue and they did it with no sweat. Swing Assembly made my party perfect!
