About The Jukebox Swing Band – modern swing & jazz band based in Edinburgh
The Jukebox Swing Band began its musical life as a classic swing and jazz band. However, influences of the 1950’s, classic film themes and current music began to inspire the band.
Combining their love of old and new music, The Jukebox Swing Band offers up “pop-swing” by remastering modern favourites into vintage style tunes which sit happily alongside jazz standards.
Old and young find themselves dancing the night away in their own personal nostalgia.
Inspired by the internet sensation Postmodern Jukebox, The Jukebox Swing Band have both covered and arranged a large number of modern songs in vintage swing style.
The popularity of this “modern-swing” has seen the band perform at the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh International Conference Centre and as the house band for the premiere of Hyena at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
Their lively set has something for everyone to enjoy – whether you are looking for the classics of Benny Goodman, the guitar solos of Chuck Berry or perhaps, the unlikely swing covers of a cheesy 90s favourite!
So if you're looking to hire the finest swing & jazz band Edinburgh (Scotland) has to offer for your wedding or event, get in touch with us.

"I had the pleasure of listening and dancing to The Jukebox Swing Band at an event recently. They are so brilliant, friendly, professional and versatile and sound great together that we invited them back to do our next event as soon as the night was over. They were everyone's favourite band by the end of the night!"

"I saw The Jukebox Swing Band at Whistle Binkies several times when I was in Edinburgh. And you know what I deeply miss them, miss this kind of music where I lived. I miss Sophie's voice and clarinet, I miss the great fun I had when I was there, dancing and swinging and thinking I was in the 20's. I deeply miss the great atmosphere they create. So, if you have the opportunity to see them, please don't miss them!"

"Absolutely fantastic band. Travelled all the way to the highlands to perform for our event and we were not disappointed. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the swing music of old and some with a modern twist. Such a friendly happy band who have an amazing connection with each other and the audience. Will definitely want to see them again."

"I have been going to The Jukebox Swing Band gigs for the last 3 years, and have seen the band get better and better at each performance. They are now a "tight" sounding band offering a range of material over the decades, adding their own unique arrangement to well-known songs, both new and old. They always get the audience up and dancing, that is a sign of a good band. Once you have seen The Jukebox Swing Band perform, you too will become an instant fan. If you are hosting a corporate function, wedding, birthday.....any event that you wish people to be up dancing and enjoying themselves.....don't hire a DJ, book The Jukebox Swing Band, live music cannot be beaten."
