Our Music

Music that Makes You Move

When it comes to public concerts, bar and bat mitzvahs, birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, or a classy cocktail party, the musical needs all revolve around one key ingredient: Music that makes you move. We want music to move people from the inside out; from their heart to their heels. After all, people only move to music with a heart and soul. The Orchestra performs and provides live music in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and Connecticut.

The Summer Swing Orchestra works with your tastes and needs to craft a custom playlist designed to connect with your guests. If your event needs a smaller ensemble, we can help you select just the right combination. If the full band is what’s best, we’re glad to play your event. Your need is our desire. You deserve a sound blending your needs with top-notch quality.
