Swing, jive and jazz from the 1940s and 50s together with our vintage take on modern pop classics.

Betty Baker and the Swingtones are a six piece swing and jive band from Kent, playing songs from the post war era, as well as adding a swing twist to recent pop tunes. The perfect entertainment for any type of event where you are looking for a band with a vintage vibe that will get you up and dancing.

"A top notch evening. Wonderful entertainment, serious musicianship and big smiles all night! They look as good as they sound. What a fantastic band - highly recommended."
