This event is over.


Thomson Swing Band is a big band under the umbrella of the illustrious Thomson Jazz Club. The band, as its name implies, is rooted in the big band tradition of swing music which emerged in the 1930s and 1940s. Thomson Swing Band proudly embraces the spirit of Duke Ellington and Count Basie's legendary big bands.


The band has actively been performing at various venues around Singapore since its inception in 1999, including a 5-year stint playing weekly in front of the Rain Oculus at Marina Bay Sands. In addition, Thomson Swing Band has performed in venues overseas such as, the prominent jazz venue in Hong Kong, Ned Kelly's Last Stand, and the historic Geographer Cafe in Melaka. 


No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
