Here is a typical case study. 2014 the cruise ship band were booked to provide jazz and jazz related music for a cruise running from Buenos Aires, up to Rio De Janeiro and Salvador, during Carnival season, then up the Amazon, eventually emerging into Caribbean waters culminating in a final trip to Barbados.

Whilst performing on the cruise ship, reflecting the various cultural variations of the countries visited, the cruise ship band played Tango (Argentina) Samba and Bossa Nova (Brazil) and Calypso (The Caribbean) this was as well as their impressive mix of Jazz, Lounge, Blues, Soul, Rhumba, Gospel, Rat Pack, Cajun and Swing.

For a really experienced Cruise Ship Jazz Band, we are the complete package. How and Why? Flexibility. This is a group that can cover a deck dance, present a Vegas Lounge Singers show or a New Orleans themed performance.

We can play Dinner Jazz at a whisper for the Captains welcome party and Dixieland Jazz for a Sail away. Below are three video examples, all different showing the variety of music this unique band has to offer.

Variety is the key. Not many cruise ship jazz bands are capable of putting on a full New Orleans show in the concert room, performing for a gala night for full on dancing, strict tempo included. We can put on a three set deck dance, then play background cocktail lounge jazz for a Captains cocktail party. We can perform a Dixieland themed night, complete with a funny and entertaining presentation and put on a concert tribute to the great swing singers or a concert tribute to the Vegas Lounge Singers….the list goes on.

One cruise, the band was asked to provide Great Gatsby Jazz Band Hire for two weeks. Hear the wide variation of what the Swamp Dogs are capable of here on our video promo page or our other musical services page.

If you want to discuss the possibility of the Swamp Dogs Band adding that something extra to your cruise entertainment then contact us or use the phone numbers on our jazz band hire page. We have an info and gallery page too. Because of musical commitments ashore (Weddings, Parties, Corporate Events, Jazz band Henley  our Burlesque band work, Jazz Club gigs such as Ronnie Scott’s) the band tend not to take on cruise ship band engagements for more than six weeks.
