The Swing Legacy
This swing band from Boston, six pieces plus vocalist, presents the polish, heat, and energy of the renowned big swing bands of the swing era.
The Swing Legacy stands out among Boston swing bands, because we are essentially a little big band. Our exciting original arrangements produce a big band sound and make the group sound larger than six pieces. Our personnel consists of Boston’s finest and most experienced big band swing jazz musicians.
Our swing music is both great dance music and interesting concert jazz, and it fulfills many different functions — wedding reception music, swing dance music, concert jazz, big band swing music, and live music for corporate entertainment. Swing music is universally popular because it is high-energy, danceable, and accessible without sacrificing musical quality. Since forming in 1991, we have played for innumerable wedding receptions, swing dances, jazz concerts, corporate events, and fund-raisers. Our CDs have received many complimentary reviews, and two songs have been used in national TV spots and network TV shows.
Our repertoire concentrates on classic big band swing music, including many Duke Ellington and Count Basie numbers. The Swing Legacy is acclaimed for its impeccable musicianship, powerful beat, and exquisite swing.
