SwingTime Music is a jazz combo headed by drummer John Lombardo and based in Madison, Wisconsin. We provide fun, danceable music for any occasion from in-home parties to wedding receptions, corporate events, or fundraisers. You can opt for a classic jazz trio, or add a soloist or two, like a sax, trumpet, or vocalist. We'll help match our band to your party needs.
You'll recognize jazz standards, as well as adapted pop tunes from the fifties, sixties, and seventies. Familiar tunes, like “Satin Doll,” “Take the A Train,” “Girl From Ipanema,” and “Shadow of Your Smile” bring back the glamour of the swing era and jazz greats such as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and Cole Porter. Highlights from the classic rock and pop songs of the sixties and seventies revive the excitement of hits like “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” “I Saw Her Standing There,” and “Proud Mary.” Swingtime Music can play many song requests on the spot, and our band leader makes sure your audience is well entertained.
We wanted to thank you for the wonderful entertainment at our wedding! The atmosphere that you were able to help create was exactly what we were looking for! Plus our guests just loved you! Wonderful job & thanks again!”
