Silver Swing is a 19 piece swing band ensemble that has been performing since 1993.
The band specializes in classic swing music of the Big Band era from Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman etc to a wide range of sophisticated contemporary big band sounds, Latin and more modern swing music.
Rehearsals are every Thursday afternoon at the Music Centre in Burlington, ON and are open for visits from potential clients.
In addition to fine musical arrangements, the band also features female vocalist, Jane Watson. There is nothing like a live big band for your special event! The band offers performances of one, two and three hours for your entertainment, dancing and listening pleasure. For samples of the music, go to the Music page and press the various play buttons.
Silver Swing is flexible to your needs and requests, and always ready to perform for you. When you want to impress your guests with the full rich sound of a 19 piece Big Band, Silver Swing Big Band is a surprisingly affordable choice.
The band is now under the musical direction of Roger Girard, taking over from Wes Otsuka who retired June, 2019.
We appreciate the talents of our members and, in many cases, their partners, who volunteer to assist the band in moving forward in every way. We would like to acknowledge the invaluable contribution by Paul Romanow in providing us with most of the images in our Gallery.
