Swing'it Dixieband


Swing'it Dixieband - Norway's hottest Dixieband -brings the audience 100 years back in time and across the Atlantic to 1920s New Orleans! Their highly entertaining shows gives the audience classic horn solos, intricate vocal harmonies, swinging bass lines, awkward jokes, an out-of-tune banjo, grooving drums and three buckets of charm - all while dressed in classic outfits with bowties and boater hats! 

They have more than 40 concerts behind them at big international jazz and pop festivals like Kongsberg Jazzfestival, Slottsfjellfestivalen, Edinburgh Blues and Jazz Festival and Molde Jazzfestival, in addition to hundreds of concerts at events, clubs, speakeasies, weddings, Great Gatsby Parties and as humble street musicians!

In addition to their classic show they offer an all Disney Jazz Concert with famous and classic Disney tunes covered in a 1920s way! Spring 2018 they were participating in the semi finals of Norway’s Got Talent

This is a band you definitely don't want to miss!

Swing’it is a brilliant band that I had hired for weekly performances. Their Dixieland & New Orleans style certainly suited the venue. Their carefully chosen covers rightly sat into the mood, be it a quiet evening or getting the dance floor downright busy. It is an absolute pleasure working with such a professional band and I surely refer them for private hire functions

These guys are a firework of a band! The atmosphere has been perfect every time Swing’it played at our bar! Highly recommended!
(and the girls love them, too!)
— - Cecil's Cocktail Club
Swing’it are one of the most popular bands to have played at the Candlelight Club. The combination of toe-tapping rhythms, effusive horns and five-part vocals created the perfect vintage mood and kept people on their feet all evening. I think I had more positive comments from guests about this band than any other
— Candlelight Club
