Testimonials

“The originators of live Electro Swing in the UK. Swing Zazou are at the cutting edge of the live remix of the 1920`s to the 1950`s. Unlike most acts, the band are all acclaimed and very talented live musicians. They are on a path to greatness”
Chris Tofu, Electro Swing Club London

“Quite simply one of the very best and longest serving bands on the White Mink stage. This incredible 8-piece band perfectly marries vintage swing with modern beats in a way that few other can match… and importantly, in a way you can Swing-dance to. They have also been the band that have launched more new events and stages for us than any other. These guys always deliver!”
Nick Hollywood, White Mink

“Swing Zazou, an electro swing dance group inspired by the “big band” and “Gypsy Swing” wave in the 30’s and 40’ have successfully combined their rhythm with vibrant live shows. They use violin, guitar, contrabass and drums in association with energetic stage performances. They have also transformed some of the greatest Swing hits such as “It Ain’t Right”, “Don’t Fall Asleep”, “Diga Diga Doo” with modern beats. After their first official concert in London “Lovebox Festival” in 2009 which turned out to be a big hit, they have became one of the most wanted names in similar festivals worldwide.“
