Welcome to the home of the 

"Swinginest" Bands in Melbourne

The 

LET'S DANCE Big Band

and the

 SOUTH COAST SWINGTET.

PLAYING YOUR FAVOURITE TUNES FROM THE SWINGING BIG BAND ERA

WITH CLASSIC VOCALS FROM THE GREATS

A DASH OF DIXIE,

A SPOONFUL OF BOOGIE,

A SPICE OF LATIN,

ALL STIRRED AND COOKED UNTIL SWINGING!

The  LET'S DANCE Big Band is made up of 5 saxes and woodwinds, 3 or 4 trumpets, 3 or 4 trombones and 3 or 4 rhythm, up to 18 in all. We love to play all the classic big band favourites of Goodman - [ his "Lets Dance" is the midi file playing in the background and is our theme tune and policy ] along with Ellington, Basie, Shaw, Herman, Miller, Dorsey, James etc.. We have many authentic charts from these great bands in addition to an extensive library of standards and some of the more modern tunes, plus, many charts for the Jive, Swing and Lindy Hop dances now all the rage. We also have a good selection of Latin favourites and an Old Time Ballroom dance book. We have great vocalists in Anna Struth, Daniel Hedger and Paul Dunn who sing songs from Ella Fitzgerald, Linda Ronstadt, Shirley Bassey, Natalie and Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme, Michael Buble, Robbie Williams, Louis Prima and Joe Williams amongst others.

A 150 watt P.A. sound system can be provided if required also.
