Australia's Own JW Swing Orchestra
Swing & Jazz available for hire, based in Victoria
This Jazz Orchestra has been in existence since 1974 under the leadership of clarinetist John Wanner. Throughout its history, John has managed to obtain numerous rare, authentic and exciting arrangements of the Big Band Era. Most of these are popular Swing standards of the 1930's to the 1950's.
We can also play melodies from the 1960's and 1970's, but SWING MUSIC of such bands as Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Jimmy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, etc, is what the JW Swing Orchestra is all about.
Authenticity is very important to John and very little compromise is made in the reproduction of these fantastic songs and top quality musicianship is always present! The vocal styles of artists including Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and Perry Como, are presented by the JW Swing Orchestra’s featured vocalist/MC, David Mooney. Additional female vocal hits are presented by Keren Summers.
