Down for the Count are a mini big band who bring the sounds of the Swing Era back to life, with an electrifying show full of incredible energy and musicianship.

Since bursting onto the scene in 2013, Down for the Count have quickly earned themselves a reputation as one of the hardest swinging bands in the UK. They are constantly in demand, with performance credits including Twinwood Festival, The London Jazz Festival, Pizza Express Jazz Club Soho, Hideaway Streatham, Le Caveau de la Huchette in Paris and now Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club in London.

 In 2017 the band recorded a new studio album “Let’s Dance”, celebrating the music of the dance bands of the 1930s and 40s, which was featured on Clare Teal’s BBC Radio 2 show.  This will be followed by a new live album "Live at the Tabernacle" which will be released in August 2018.

The band recreate classic tunes from the likes of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Glenn Miller. But this is no mere nostalgia trip – Down for the Count perform each song in their own unmistakeable style, breathing new life into the best vintage music.

 Combine that with the band’s top class instrumental solos, sublime vocal performances, and irresistible humour and joie de vivre, and you get a show that will leave you feeling uplifted and wanting more.

 “A breath of fresh air on the Swing scene today.”
