Swing Fever has been performing for more than 35 years and their goal is to provide quality entertainment while taking their audience back to the era of swing music and the “big band” sound, keeping alive that special sound. The band is a locally organized and will entertain audiences in the tradition of the “big band” era with the music and vocals of that bygone time. The band performs at various events and in concert throughout Pennsylvania and along the east coast, including just completing their performances at the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum’s WWII Commemorative Weekend in Reading, at the Sunnybrook Ballroom in Pottstown, and throughout community activities and functions across southeastern Pennsylvania.
Swing Fever provides high quality musical entertainment from the Swing era playing music of the 1920s to 50s, including the War years of the 1940s. They have performed for several years in our Concert Series and always pack the bandshell and delight their audiences.
