If you're looking to capture the essence of a bygone era then Swing Vipers is your perfect choice.

Swing Vipers is comprised of experienced and versatile musicians on upright bass, guitars, and clarinet. Add in the vocal harmonies and you will find our sound to be uplifting and spirited. Swing Vipers will work with you to create the perfect atmosphere for your event. Please contact us with any questions you may have.


Having come of age during the "swing revival"… I've seen and heard more than my fair share of bands. Swing Vipers ranks amongst the very best I've seen, bar none. Set after set, Swing Vipers maintained the vibe seamlessly and appropriately, always providing the exciting pulse of live music that is impossible to get with a DJ. They took requests with ease (they seem to know the entirety of the American Songbook), added the right ambiance, and provided the soundtrack for what many believe (not just the bride and groom), was one of the swankiest weddings ever! - Writer/Producer John Bobey



“Swing Vipers' program showcased the 1920s-50s period perfectly – with a contemporary style that appealed to all ages. Excellent musicians, Delightful repertoire, Perfect instrumentation, Authentic vocalization, Flexible re: set-up (we'd had to change the location a week before the event!), Great value for what they gave us, Clear communication throughout, Accommodating to requests, Nice people, Relaxed – nobody too terribly serious. I guess you can tell I'm certainly recommending them … and would hire them again for their timeless music no matter the occasion.” - Alix Beeney

Swing Vipers was absolutely amazing! The senior class at The Culinary Institute of America booked them for our Mardi Gras themed benefit dinner. We had to make a couple of last minute changes, but they were very accommodating and easy to work with. They are very talented and we received numerous compliments on their performance. Upon our request, they were able to play smooth jazz in the beginning of the dinner, then got people swinging on the dance floor towards the end with gritty jazz music. They made our Mardi Gras themed event fun and festive! Thank you very much Swing Vipers!
