Book Them! You will be so glad you did...

I have coordinated several large corporate events, requiring entertainment, and understand that music/entertainment will make or break an event.

I recently booked Swing Je T'aime for a Gastby/20s themed event, with over 200 attendees.

First, their performance was BEYOND STELLAR!! They set the perfect mood for the event. They are highly skilled, professional performers/musicians. They dressed the part. I received so many compliments on Swing Je T'aime, from the attendees. And I myself was very proud to have them perform at this event.

Beyond the performance, everyone was professional. All of my questions were quickly answered. I worked with Lacy on the booking details, and she was spectacular!

Obviously, I was very impressed and would highly recommend Swing Je T'aime!

The Perfect Fit!

We were beyond happy with Swing Je T'aime's performance at our F&W Grand Tasting event. Not only were they a perfect match, setting the exact "mood" we looking for, but they were flexible and easy to work with. The booking manager, Lacey, was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I have heard nothing but raving reviews from guests and co-workers that attended this event. Thank you so much Swing Je T'aime!

Absolutely Perfect

We were so impressed with Swing Je T'aime! They were perfect for our wedding and really set the atmosphere for it. As a picky bride who was very very specific with the music, I was blown away with the top notch performance they consistently delivered throughout the night. And it was wonderful to see the obvious joy that all of the musicians had for playing their instruments, and for performing. I really cannot recommend this band enough.

Extremely Talented Band!

We hired Swing Je T'aime for our corporate holiday party which had a speakeasy/1920's theme. This band was absolutely perfect in every way for our event. They were all very accommodating and professional. We broke our evening up and had a quartet during happy hour, a duo during dinner, and then the full eight-piece ensemble for the dancing and casino portion of our evening. The music was great; everyone loved it!

Brought uplifting class to our corporate event

We hired Swing Je T'aime for a summit we had for our software company. Along with some food trucks and live music it really brought some fun to our evening gathering. The entire experience was professional and fun. I would highly recommend the band for any such event.

Amazing band with great sound and class!!!

We hired Swing Je T'aime for our wedding ceremony and reception. They were outstanding! Guests constantly complimented us on how great the band was. We had our wedding at the Denver Botanic Gardens which prohibits use of amplification--no problem for Swing Je T'aime! Their acoustic 5 piece and amazing singer were incredible. They totally fit in with our '40's style vibe and were very nice. Their manager, Lacey, was a pleasure to work with and made our music planning a piece of cake. We highly recommend this band and would use them again in a heartbeat!

Delightful!!

Swing Je T'aime played for a church dinner show on a Friday evening. They were delightful! We would have them back in a heartbeat! They enjoyed (I hope) dinner with us and were all very gracious and personable. The music was great! Clap! Clap! Clap!

Fun Unique & Refreshing A Welcome Departure from the Mundane

I loved listening to and watching Swing Je T'aime perform. The selection of music and the original compositions was truly refreshing. I love the Django style gypsy jazz and the cross generational music. Their vocalist is great and it is obvious that the musicians love playing together and the guitarist is amazing.

Perfect

Swing Je T'aime is an excellent band. They have the ability to expand from two people on up so the fit will be perfect for your gathering. We were a bit undecisive with our booking and they were very patient with us and very professional. I loved their music and our event wouldn't have been anything near the celebration it became if they wouldn't have been involved.

Overview

Swing Je T'aime's concerts are high-energy and exciting. The director enjoys adding playful swing arrangements of popular songs from other genres, so the audience always has something familiar to connect with. The chemistry on-stage between the band members is infectious; they're all accomplished, professional musicians with advanced degrees in their crafts, yet they do understand their role as entertainers!

Private clients are treated with utmost respect, as our manager understands that most people will only book live bands for their life's most important events.

Swing Je T'aime

In addition to their extensive public performance schedule, Swing Je T'aime is still accepting private bookings as a 6/7-piece headline ensemble for all occasions, in any locale. Smaller events may book a 4-piece combo, billed as "petite Swing Je T'aime," with or without vocals.

"Our music is a listener-friendly blend including fresh takes on classic favorites; unburied treasures; and innovative, original songs. We are a swing band, unconfined. Our primary influences include legendary two-fingered trailblazer Django Reinhardt and his Hot Club of France; the genre-bending "little orchestra" from Portland, Pink Martini; and accessible polystylism. While our performances are musically satisfying to the master's- and doctorate- level professionals in our ensemble, each song is crafted with the goal of maintaining a general accessibility. Through our exciting shows which uniquely balance musical familiarity and newness, we have achieved a rare level of multi-generational appeal.
Swing Je T'aime is exclusively for everyone!"
- composer/director/guitarist Aaron Walker

Headline Concerts-

Festivals-
With exciting, multi-cultural performances that have such a strong cross-generational appeal, Swing Je T'aime's music is ideal for setting a celebratory, artistic, accessible tone at public festivals!
