Swingshift Big Band (East Sussex)




Swingshift is an exciting 18 piece big band based in Uckfield, near Lewes, in East Sussex (England), formed by trumpeter Jonathan Bailey and trombonist Alan Seymour.


Specialising in recreating the authentic style of swing ensemble playing the band benefits greatly from the extensive knowledge that both these highly experienced professional musicians have gained throughout their careers playing in the top professional big bands in the country.


With a wide repertoire of great arrangements from Basie to Broadway, Gordon Goodwin to Glenn Miller, plus the vocal talents of jazz singer Aprile Biggs and the addition of our own small group, Swingshift has everything to make your event go with a SWING !
