BIOGRAPHY

Let Andy Johnson take you on an incredible journey of jazz and swing music from the sensational Rat pack era right through to the present day.

The show takes the audience on the incredible journey of jazz and swing music - from the sensational Rat Pack era right through to the present day, bringing the era of Big Band and swing music into the 21st century by introducing tracks from Harry Connick Jnr, Robbie Williams and of course Michael Buble. It isn’t a tribute show but we do pay tribute to these artists and others by performing some of their well known and most popular tracks.

With all this said, Andy doesn’t ignore the brilliant era of the Rat Pack! Andy goes right back to this era in the early part of the show to perform classic tracks such as ‘Fly Me To The Moon’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘Come Fly With Me’ - all of which are hugely popular with audiences of any age.

The show is full of energy and Andy always interact with the audience during his performances so they feel very involved and engaged with the band and the music. We include solo performances from some of the musicians which goes down very well and is very unique and memorable. Andy always gets the audience on their feet singing along with the band and dancing so it really is a great, fun evening.

Andy and his band have vast experience performing at charity events, gala dinners, award ceremonies, weddings and themed parties and my impressive client list includes The Groucho Club London, Matt and Phreds Jazz Club Manchester, The Hilton Hotel Manchester, The Institute of Directors and the 20th Century Fox, London/New York.

Andy’s Band can be configured to match your venue and the purpose of your function. From solo accompanied piano, to a 17 piece swing band, Andy’s band is versatile enough to make the perfect centrepiece for any event!

Andy will be happy to advise you on the best band setup for your venue and event. Whether you need a singer, piano and double bass, (perfect for wedding ceremonies) or a full big band ensemble featuring some of the finest musicians in the UK (ideal for letting your hair down at the reception!) – Andy Sings Swing is your man.

Extended music set

 

I have been asked more and more to provide music at events after my live performance finishes. Similar to a DJ, I now own 20,000 tracks from all different genres so I can now provide background music and disco music.

 

This is ideal for any clients that are looking for a DJ-style service but may not have the budget for both a live performance and a DJ. I provide professional PA and a full lighting package – as I would with a live performance.

 

Swinging Waiters

 

This is proving really popular at the moment. It is a similar concept to the Singing Waiters however we specialize in jazz and swing music. This is perfect for any client who wants this genre of music but also wants that added element of fun and surprise for guests.

 

As well as myself performing, I bring additional performers with me who are all first class singers and entertainers.

 

We can be disguised as either a waiter or member of staff and even a guest. Then from a pre arranged time agreed with the client, we break into song and give the guests an experience they will never forget.

 

Compere

 

Weddings or events don’t just happen. I often find on the day the bride or birthday boy is often very busy meeting and greeting guests, socialising and enjoying themselves - as it should be! They therefore require a little bit of extra help in managing and coordinating the event and this is where I can help.  I can coordinate with the venue to ensure the special day or event goes to time and to plan. This may include assistance with a receiving line, the grand entrance, speeches, cake cutting and any other special arrangements. With over 15 years in the industry I am experienced in this area and find that clients are always really grateful for my support and help.

 

I also have various packages on offer, which can be tailored to meet your clients’ exact requirements.  Example packages include:
