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.
