The Swing Shift Orchestra


The Swing Shift Orchestra is SE Michigan’s premier ‘big band’ whose talented musicians are dedicated to producing the highest musical quality and authenticity of the big band era.   The band performs regularly at both public and private events (and at surprisingly reasonable rates).   The band was formed in 1993 and has been a mainstay on the Detroit musical scene with concerts, festivals, recordings, wedding receptions, fundraisers, and many other special occasions.   The repertoire of the  band is vast so as to include these many diverse performance opportunities.
