Down For The Count Swing Orchestra are London’s hottest mini Big Band and vintage dance orchestra, and they return to Hideaway for another exhilarating family-friendly show celebrating Ella Fitzgerald. Join us for Sunday Lunch!
The Down For The Count Swing Orchestra bring the sounds of the Swing Era back to life, performing tailor-made arrangements of big band classics that remain faithful to the original recordings and showcase the talented instrumentalists and vocalists in the band, whilst drawing on inspiration from the likes of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman amongst others.
In June they will be paying tribute to one of the greatest jazz singers of all time, Ella Fitzgerald, in the year she would have celebrated her 100th birthday. Expect to hear some classic Ella repertoire including "Cheek to Cheek", "Manhattan" and "All the Things You Are", and other repertoire from her contemporaries including Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra.
Down For The Count are a hit in dance halls, concert halls, theatres and festivals, and their joyful performance and infectious rhythm never fails to get toes tapping and audiences dancing... so no need to feel guilty about following your Hideaway Sunday lunch with that cheeky dessert after all!
