How can anyone be expected to face an office on an afternoon like Friday? Ignoring the fact that many can and do face countless afternoons like Friday in their working life – a few of us took a little time out from booking entertainment for corporate events and weddings to check out London based Swing merchants The Fabulous Lounge Swingers who were plying their swingy trade at the BT London live festival in Hyde Park.
With gleeful, kitchy abandon – the Fabulous Lounge Swingers weave together unlikely strands of Pop, Swing, Ragtime, Jive and Chas n’ Dave style Cockerney Kneeses Up into a curious musical concoction that’s quirky, original and infectiously fun. Taking on a repertoire of covers ranging from Madonna to Radiohead, the band leave their unmistakable stamp on any song they touch. They were perfectly suited to an outdoor festival, but would work equally well at vintage weddings and indoor events with a suitably retro, playful feel.
'The Swingers' were also the house band on Channel 4's Big Brother spin off Big Brother's Little Brother and you can choose to either not hold that against them or think that's great! depending on your opinion of Big Brother. Take a look at them performing on the show below.
