Down for the Count
Swing Band – GALA EVENING
The Down for the Count All-Stars are a 10-piece 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 on to the scene at Twinwood Festival in 2013, Down for the Count All-Stars have quickly earned themselves a reputation as one of the hardest swinging bands in the UK. They are constantly in demand, regularly selling out shows at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and Le Caveau de la Huchette, Paris. They have also been invited to support The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, performing in front of 10,000 people at Leeds Castle Classical Concerts.
Led by musical director and pianist Mike Paul-Smith, the band have self-released multiple studio albums to positive reviews.
Down for the Count recreate classical tunes from the likes of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Glen 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 instrument solos, sublime vocal performances, and irresistible humour and joie de vivre, and you have a show that will leave you feeling uplifted and wanting more.
