Founded in 2016, Vintage Swing Thing are an exciting swing/jazz crossover band, based in Lancashire but covering all areas of the North-West and beyond, including Manchester, Merseyside and Yorkshire.

Inspired by the hugely popular Postmodern Jukebox, this group of musicians are eclectic and virtuosic, featuring graduates from world-renowned Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts and the Royal Welsh College Of Music. The band founding singers were Nicholas James Gunn and Helena Johnson, who together with the band performed a sell out show at The Grand in 2017.

Adee and Arthur take on the lead vocals and bounce off one another through a multi-decade and multi-genre musical journey. From Sinatra classics to Lady Gaga with a 20s skiffle twist, there’s something for every guest of every age.

With keys, sax/clarinet, drums, trumpet and double bass backing the twin lead vocals, this is a big sound for a wedding or event looking to make a big impression.
