Famed for their authentic swing-era sound, James Langton’s big bands and small groups produce driving dance beats for Swing aficionados and exhilarating solos from the cream of contemporary swing and jazz musicians. The New York All-Star Big Band and The New York Swing Stars, based in New York City, and The Solid Senders, based in London, have recently played famous venues including Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing, the Rainbow Room atop Manhattan’s Rockefeller Center, and Ronnie Scott's famous jazz club in London.

Step back in time as James Langton and his band perform all-time-great songs and swing hits. In concert, for dancing or simply to create the right atmosphere, from the swinging big band sounds of Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and Frank Sinatra to mixed ballroom favorites, let James Langton lead you from aperitif to digestif in an unforgettable atmosphere of romance.

"James Langton will transport you back in time to an age of romance and style. Whether in a theater or at a performing arts center concert, in an intimate nightclub, at a swing dance, a wedding, at your private or corporate event, with big band or small, James Langton will bring that touch of class you need to make your event a swinging success."
