King’s Swingers perform at The Elms

Last Friday evening the King’s Swingers performed at The Elms School Jazz and Swing Evening. This is an invitational event where four schools are invited to entertain the black-tie dinner and the jazz band finished the evening having listened to performances from Shrewsbury School, Sedbergh and Malvern College.

The band began with a set of swing numbers – Pennsylvania 6-5000, American Patrol and Birth of the Blues. This was followed by a mix of styles including Night Train and Bridge Over Troubled Water.

The audience was extremely appreciative of the King’s Swingers’ performance and we were invited by the Headmaster of The Elms to finish the evening with an encore of our performance of Kool and the Gang’s Jungle Boogie.
