Thornbury Swing Band plays swing jazz instrumental and vocal numbers from the 1930s right up to modern times - with a line up of saxophones, trombones, trumpets, and male and female vocalists. All supported by a rhythm section of bass, guitar, keyboard and drums.
None of the band is paid for playing. We give our time and enthusiasm to raise money for charity. After covering our running costs (insurance, music, etc), all money raised by the band is donated to good causes in the local area. Since 2008 we have donated many thousand of pounds to local causes.
If you would be interested in the band supporting your charity, please download our "Fundraising with a Swing" leaflet and get in touch with us via our contact page.
Thank you for your wonderful sets at the VE Day Swing for Victory event in aid of Holly Hedge. You're all superb and talented and seem to take it up a level each year which I didn't think was possible as you're just brilliant anyway!
A HUGE thank you for playing at our wedding in the summer. You were fantastic and really made the evening for us. It's such a treat to be able to dance to live music and so many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed your sets - whether they were dancers or not.
Well done everyone, the best band I've had the pleasure to dance with.
I am sure you are all still shattered from last night. You all worked so hard to make the evening go with a "Swing'. I had many comments last night and also this morning about how fantastic you all are and that they enjoyed the evening. Please can you personally thank all of your band for me, for providing everyone with a truly memorable evening. Let's hope we can do it all again!
It is difficult to put into words how wonderful last evening at Armstrong Hall was, everyone was so impressed with your musicians, and I'm sure you could tell by the reception you had, that we all had a really great evening... AGAIN sincere thanks for last evening, your band is just excellent and a credit for all the ‘back room staff’ and all the practising and presentation to detail you all made. I sincerely hope we can book you again.
