The Sultans are a 6-piece band playing an exciting mix of danceable music, guaranteed to make your event go with a swing!
With a repertoire to suit all tastes including jump jive in the form of Ain’t Nobody Here But Us Chickens and Choo Choo Ch’ Boogie by Louis Jordan, Just a Gigolo (Louis Prima), a selection of Sinatra (Nice ‘n’ Easy, The Best is Yet to Come, Too Close for Comfort, Goody Goody), plus a hint of Glenn Miller (spirited versions of In the Mood and Pennsylvania 6-5000), a touch of Latino in Sway, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps and Oye Como Va, plus a smattering of something more modern (Tiger Feet, Lovecats, Tainted Love), this is exactly the right mix to make your event one to remember.
Supplementing our repertoire are selected pop and rock songs. Walk Like an Egyptian (the Bangles), Lovecats (The Cure), Valerie (Amy Winehouse / The Zutons), Moondance (Van Morrison), Tainted Love (Gloria Jones, Soft Cell), Rock This Town (The Stray Cats) and Mambo No 5 (Lou Bega) are just examples of more recent songs given the swing / rock n’ roll / rockabilly treatment.
All songs are arranged to give an authentic swing sound essential for dancers, especially any jivers present.
The Sultans can also play a more intimate swing set, creating the perfect ‘lounge atmosphere’ if required before the main event or while food / drinks are served during a ‘meet and greet’.
Songs in this style of set include Satin Doll, Georgia On My Mind, Don’t Get Around Much Anymore, Moonlight Serenade and many more!
The Sultans are the perfect choice for weddings, parties, corporate events, festivals, regattas, themed nights, launches etc.
