What to Expect
Clients who hire us can expect an ultra polished band of professional musicians who are attentive to every detail from the needs of the client, to the music played, dress and stage setup, right down to their cufflinks and the shine on their shoes. The band will take guests on a musical journey from the vintage standards of the "Great American Songbook" through 70's dance classics and current pop hits that will flow, based on the format of the event, from dinner and cocktails to dancing afterwards.
For those planning the event, there are many moving parts and a great number of details of which to keep track of and execute. We are experts at what we do and it is our goal to make the jobs of our clients as easy and stress free as possible in terms of the entertainment. We accomplish this by anticipating client needs, maintaining open communication up to the day of the event, and providing sound equipment at no extra charge in Las Vegas (in most cases.) We want to free the minds of our clients so they can focus on other details while leaving the music up to us...we've got you covered!
A native of Michigan, Justin Dean is a Las Vegas based singer of the Great American Songbook, dance classics, and current pop. Justin has been a lifelong fan of Frank Sinatra, big band era music, and jazz/pop standards since the first time, at 8 years old, he heard Bing Crosby sing “White Christmas” while sitting in front of the stereo during the holidays. This "Golden Era" of orchestras, combined with satin smooth baritone vocals, shaped his musical interests and always reminded him of spending the holidays at his grandparents’ house surrounded by family.
Being a lifelong fan of Sinatra, Justin's style harkens back to the Golden Era of The Lounge Crooner when legends such as Frank, Dean, Sammy, Elvis, and Bobby Darin were the stars of the times. Those were the days when a man stepped out for a night on the town in his best suit with a carefully knotted tie (loosened just so below the open top button,) sipped on a meticulously crafted cocktail made to his strict specifications, and entered a room with a lady on his arm (or he at least exited with one.)
While having roots in the music and spirit made popular by Rat Pack, Justin is also influenced by many other legendary and modern artists such as Michael Buble, Tom Jones, Neil Diamond, Maroon 5, Huey Lewis & The News, Bruno Mars, & Justin Timberlake. It is Justin's goal to, “melt the audience with sentimental standards that make you feel easy and wistful, then draw them to their feet with iconic dance and current pop hits.” The intent is to create a musical journey that will keep audiences of all ages glowing while celebrating to some of the greatest songs ever written.
Since 2007, Justin has appeared on PBS television, been featured in many Las Vegas, Detroit, and Atlanta hotels and lounges, and performed for charity fundraisers, political campaign events, and some of the world’s largest corporations. After hearing Justin at the Italian American Club in Las Vegas, Steve Lawrence (of the iconic singing duo Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme) said, “Hey, this kid’s good!”
Justin’s all-star SwingBeats band members are some of the best, most experienced, world class musicians to be found anywhere. His team is an A-list comprised of seasoned professionals who have played with Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Barry Manilow, Michael Bolton, Julio Iglesias, John Fogerty, Chaka Khan, and The Righteous Brothers and have opened for Tony Bennett, Sheryl Crow, & Don Rickles. Justin now makes this caliber of talent available and specializes in providing high quality live entertainment worldwide, exclusively for luxury private functions, corporate events, and destination weddings. He is passionate about using his love for great songs to, as he and those around him say, “keep the spirit alive” by bringing enjoyment to others through music.
