The Silver Ghosts are a London-based, 7-piece swing ensemble made up of trumpet, trombone, clarinet, banjo, double bass, drums and vocals. Performing numbers that evoke the hot, breathless and high spirited dance gigs of the 1920s, 30s & 40s, the band remain faithful to the spirit of the period in terms of their look and style.
They have performed at The Royal Albert Hall, The 100 Club, and other renowned jazz venues, as well as swing and vintage club nights in and around London.
Some of the band know a few period partner dance moves as well, and are liable to swing out on the dance floor, doing Charleston or Lindy Hop swing dancing.
