The Swing Specials

The Swing Specials provide swinging jazz at a conversational level that's guaranteed to enhance the atmosphere of any occasion. Drawing on the jazz and popular standards from the 40s 50s and 60s, The Swing Specials have been entertaining party guests for more than a decade.

The Swing Specials are led by saxophonist Stan Scott and guitarist Guy Harrup. The band is available for booking as a duo, trio, quartet (or even a quintet if you require a vocalist).

Whatever the size of your party, we can provide your musical entertainment needs.

If your special event needs that extra-special touch of sophistication then this is the band for you.

The Blowout were fantastic from the moment we first contacted them about playing at our wedding until the last note was played. The band were totally professional throughout - setup was efficient and hassle free, even to the point of liaising with the disco-man which was music to the bride's ears ~thanks Mark!! The band played appropriate music to suit every aspect of the reception from great background music to full-on classic sounds which soon got everyone dancing - even the traditional 'non-dancers.' The only things the band came second to on the day was the bride (I would say that) but from all the comments from our friends it was a very close call!
