'Bloody marvellous music tonight really great sound well done' Sylvia, Concert Promoter for Le Quecumbar venue in Battersea
"The Boomtown Swingalings are a very gifted bunch of musicians, passionate about keeping swing music alive—and live. Not only do you get five virtuoso players but they also—unusually—have a very talented vocalist with just the right voice for this kind of music. I shall definitely be booking them regularly for The Candlelight Club." Clayton Hartley, promoter for the Candlelight Club
" The best dance band I've heard - When they played Rockin' in Rhythm I thought it was the original record, the sound was so crisp, and the rhythm so catchy ... The best band I've ever danced to" George Tudor Hart, Swing Dance Event organiser
Here you can listen to more of the Swingalings repertoire this time featuring the vocals of Emine Pirhasan. All of what you hear can be played live by the band whichever line up you choose.
