Don’t miss your chance to see and hear something special.  SwingShift  is available for dances, concerts and private or corporate functions.  Every function will become an event with John Greiner's SwingShift Big Band!

Little Big Band

Four horns (Trumpet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone and Trombone), piano, bass, drums, along with male vocalist.  That's what you call a "Little Big Band"!
An amazingly big sound from a smaller line up than the full sized SwingShift Big Band is what we have to offer.  Our music library consists of the classic swing material from the Big Band Era along with the vocals that made this music famous.   The size of the band may be smaller, but the size of the sound is anything but small! 
An excellent alternative for smaller venues that can't handle the size of SwingShift or when you're looking for slightly more than a jazz trio or quartet.  John Greiner's Little Big Band is truly the perfect fit for any occassion!
