Swing bands have such a great collection of songs to choose from in order to put together their wedding band sets. The great American songbook, as the collection of swing covers played by the likes of Sinatra,Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Buble etc has come to be known, is a rich and brilliant selection of songs with many tunes that are known from movies,TV and hundreds of cover versions.
If you are looking for a dinner jazz set then you may want some ballads included in the bands set list but if you are looking for a jazz swing band with an uptempo set list then the songs below are amongst the top tunes to look out for.
All of the songs below have been covered by the top swing singers and so I have not put an artists name at the side of any of the song tittles. For my money if Sinatra covered the track he has usually made it his own but Tony Bennet,Dean Martin,Ella and Paul Anka are amongst the other great singers of the swing era. More recently Rod Stewart,West Life and Robbie Williams have all made covers albums of swing covers.
