In addition to great music, Colorado Swing has an extensive list of media contacts to help promote your public event in news publications, event calendars, and on multiple social media sites.  We maintain our own confidential mailing list of hundreds of fans who have asked to be informed about our upcoming performances. The Colorado Swing name can bring in added customer attendance to your event.  We offer a discount for local non-profit fundraisers that use our name in the advertising. We want to work with you to make your event successful and memorable.

Colorado Swing Big Band is our full-size big band. Colorado Swing Cats is our smaller version of the big band that has the music, style and excitement that you expect, easily fits on to a smaller stage and may be the right size for your venue. You have the option to add Roaring 20s era and New Orleans Dixieland music to your Great Gatsby or Mardi Gras party along with traditional dancing.

Choice City Jazz Band performs traditional New Orleans & Dixieland jazz, blues and swing including great Roaring 20s era jazz. Enjoy exciting music from great artists like Bix Beiderbecke, Jelly Roll Morton, Kid Ory, King Oliver, Sidney Bechet, Johnny Dodds and Louis Armstrong. Great entertainment for your Mardi Gras or Great Gatsby party.

We have a large library of great music and can customize the music of our performance to the theme of your event. We have your favorite songs, optional vocals, background music, Latin, Waltz, Foxtrot and Tango dance styles, Big Band Swing favorites and popular contemporary music. We will help you find the right songs for your dance or wedding.

A small ensemble is available to perform easy listening background music or energetic cocktail music on the stage preceding the Big Band dance portion of your event.  This is a great option for the silent auction part of your fundraiser and when guests are arriving or dining at your event.  I can play recorded background music during cocktails, dinner, and breaks at no extra charge.  Please let me know the city of your event, so I can estimate any travel costs. There are no travel costs for Fort Collins and Loveland area performances.

Special dates like Valentines Day or weekend, St. Patrick's Day, Saturday weddings during the Summer, Fourth of July, December Christmas parties or New Years Eve require sufficient advance notice and commitment. We are booking events well into next year, so if you are considering us for your next event please call now to have us hold that date while we work in the details.  We offer discounts for local fundraisers for qualified non-profit organizations and will strive to work within your event budget.  Many non-profit organizations have been successful in obtaining music sponsors in order to cover the cost of the band.

Most venues already have stages, dance floors and stage lighting available. We can put you in touch with contractors who provide these services if you need them. The band provides its own music stands and music stand lights and can perform under all lighting conditions.  Outdoor performances require a tent, mobile stage, or pavilion to protect the band from the rain and sun. 

Sound reinforcement is needed for announcements, solos, vocals, and an over all well balanced sound.  We can provide this service for you for a very low cost for most indoor venues and some outdoor events.  If you want to contract your own sound reinforcement services, I will be happy to send them the technical requirements and work with their sound engineers. 

We have great references from our many happy return customers ...
