About
The Swing Cats Big Band is composed of top musicians dedicated to the performance and preservation of big band music. Reminisce back to the swingin' sounds of Count Basie, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Harry James, Tommy Dorsey and many others. The Swing Cats take pride in our musical repertoire and provide the audience with an entertaining show that is sure to get the crowd on their feet. No matter if you want to cut a rug with a jump tune, foxtrot, ballad, mambo or waltz, we have the music to suit your dancing needs.

Our groups have performed all over Southern California for corporate functions, weddings, proms, city concerts and special events. Whether you wish for an authentic seventeen-piece big band, ten-piece, ten-piece big band, or a five-piece combo, we can fit your occasion.

Trumpeter and music teacher, Dan Methe, leads the band. An active member of the SCSBOA and IAJE for several years, Dan takes pride in representing a distinctive big band style. As a musician, Dan has performed throughout Southern California, Europe and the happiest place on Earth, Disneyland.

The Swing Cats Big Band is the perfect choice for parties, corporate events, dances, wedding receptions, reunions, concerts in the park or any other occasion that demands quality entertainment.

Swing Cats BIg Band was fantastic. What a night! We loved them, top to bottom. The music was great, they were so friendly, and so helpful too. Really can't say enough about how great they were.

We had a great experience working with the Swing Cats Big Band for our public festival event. The talent and sound of the group is top-notch, concert quality. Their level of professionalism and delivery of performance on stage is excellent. The Swing Kittens and swing dancers add an extra level of appeal and entainment. Dan was easy to work with and accommodating. It was helpful that they have a variety of attire options in order to find the best fit for our event. We look forward to working with the Swing Cats Big Band again!

The band was excellent. The Swing Kittens were terrific, however, they should have their microphones amped up as the band tends to drown out their harmony.

The Swing Cats (and Swing Kittens) exceeded all my expectations. Dan Methe and his crew made our event a standout! The musicians arrived early, played all the numbers we requested, handled the MC duties professionally, and our guests were blown away by the fantastic music. I highly recommend the Swing Cats (and Swing Kittens!)- money well spent!

I can't adequately express how great the Swing Cats Big Band & Swing Kittens, really and truly are. They blew us away with their spot-on renditions of standards, classic swing numbers, early 50's music, Andrews Sisters, and even music from more "modern" times. My in-laws--whose 50th Anniversary we celebrated on the Queen Mary--were thrilled as was the entire family & all of our guests. We had several requests for more information about the band from our guests and several people who were just passing by outside our venue. I give the Swing Cats Big Band & the Swing Kittens my highest recommendation! I look forward to the opportunity to use them again & SOON! 5 Stars!!

The performance was very well received by the audience. They played the 4th of July event and had a great selection of music. A good combination between jazz and patriotic. They started with the National Anthem, which went over great with the audience. They were very professional and friendly to work with.

Swing Cats Big Band and the gorgeous Swing Kittens were the hit of the party! Extremely talented and professional! I can't say enough great things about this wonderful band. Their music got people's feet moving and up on the dance floor. Despite rain and a bad windstorm in Pasadena, they made it to the hotel with plenty of time to spare. Very accommodating, Dan set up his sound system and supplied dinner music when the DJ (who was scheduled to play during the meal service) was late due to the storm. This past week, everyone at work was talking about the incredible band that made the party special. Hire this band and you won't be disappointed.
