Booking the Band

Second Wind Jazz plays formal and informal events, both indoors and out.Whether you're itching to dance or just looking to kick back with some sweet Big Band sounds, SWJ can add flair to your event. Our extensive play list includes fox trots, assorted Latin tunes (cha cha, mambo, rumba, samba, tango), slow-dance ballads, waltzes, and of course PLENTY of swing tunes. We've played for a wide variety of public, private, and corporate events and can adapt a play list to your needs.

The SWJ 18-piece Big Band generates a big sound, so have plenty of room available for both band and audience. Need something a little smaller? The SWJ Septet can bring a quieter, more intimate sound to your event. Let us know your needs and we'll do our best to fit a band to your event.

Pricing is highly reasonable. For more information on booking the band for your event, contact:
