The Swing Specials

The Swing Specials provide swinging jazz at a conversational level that's guaranteed to enhance the atmosphere of any occasion. Drawing on the jazz and popular standards from the 40s 50s and 60s, The Swing Specials have been entertaining party guests for more than a decade.



The Swing Specials are led by saxophonist Stan Scott and guitarist Guy Harrup. The band is available for booking as a duo, trio, quartet (or even a quintet if you require a vocalist).

Whatever the size of your party, we can provide your musical entertainment needs.

If your special event needs that extra-special touch of sophistication then this is the band for you.







‘Thank you so much for making my day so special. Not only was it lovely having you there but the sax sounded wonderful and very me. Thats what many of my friends commented on when they heard the sax.It is also lovely as we can hear you playing throughout our wedding video.’ [PIC] ‘Blowout’ played at our wedding in May 2009 and were a stunning success. During the evening meal, perfectly weighted dinner jazz drifted amongst our diners, invoking the classy ambience we'd hoped for. With dinner and the speeches over, the band struck-up and we were into two sets of powerful, dance-inducing renditions of many classics. Even our more dance-shy guests were drawn toward the visually and acoustically impressive spectacle of ‘Blowout’ going at full tilt. Without hesitation or exaggeration, we'd say that Blowout crowned a fantastic event in a way that we've not seen at other weddings; our guests are still talking about the performance months after the wedding! I'd warmly recommend ‘Blowout’ to anyone who wants hassle-free arrangements and great sounds, performed by talented musicians who really do play for the love of it.'
