Serendipity Swing, “A Little Big Band,” is an eight musician dance band ensemble plus a female vocalist from Buffalo, New York, that reflects a musical style from an era of the Famous Dance Halls, Glamorous Ballrooms, Classy Supper Clubs, Hot Jazz Joints and the Most Elegant of Private Parties. Our music is from the Golden Age of the Great American Songbook through more recent music favorites. The music library, with over 500 titles, contains selections which explore and mirror the beauty of the music elements; melody, harmony and rhythm. It is music that is artful, fun, graceful, whimsical, listenable, danceable and enjoyable to hear. The melodies are memorable. The harmonies are soothing and rich in texture. The tempos, rhythms, are very danceable and toe-tapping.
Serendipity Swing performs music reflective of a period of time when style, elegance, sophistication, professionalism and social graces were not just merely words, but attributes desired, expected and appreciated.
If it is a brunch, luncheon or a dinner dance at the Country Club, Yacht Club or your favorite restaurant, a fundraiser, a concert, an anniversary or wedding reception, an art show or wine tasting, a special day for someone, a “20’s Era” themed program or for the anytime celebrations in your life, Serendipity Swing is an excellent choice when you want the best for yourself and your guests.
Serendipity Swing performs for your enjoyment, not disturbing you or your guests, but strives to enhance your event, adding the quality and sophistication you deserve. Sound reinforcement is minimal and centered, not spread out to interrupt you, or anyone’s conversation.
Serendipity Swing is an ensemble that is also available during the daytime hours, and during the week, so there is no reason not to enjoy quality music, when you want it.
Serendipity Swing is a self-contained ensemble. We provide our own sound system, and all we ask is for access to electrical outlets near our staging/performing area. A brief word about our use of a sound system. For our purposes, our system is only used for vocal and solo instrument enhancement, not to take over your event or command attention. Our preferred staging area is 18 feet wide by 10 feet deep, although we have fit into smaller spaces. A riser is not necessary, and we need eight (8) chairs without arm rests.
Serendipity Swing will dress appropriately for your occasion, and will follow the guidelines and expectations of any professional event. All of the members of Serendipity Swing are professional musicians of integrity and civility.
