Pronto Swing is a vocal-led jazz band with its heart in 30s - 50s swing, a contemporary twist and half an ear to the Continent. Join Pronto for toe-tapping, swinging vocal jazz, soulful bluesy ballads, vintage dance classics and more! ! Pronto has its heart in 30s – 50s swing, with a contemporary twist, and just a hint of the Continent. Engaging vocalist Airlie Scott leads her band of talented jazz musicians from the UK and Italy, combining her love of the American songbook with a dose of nostalgia, theatricality and fun.
Pronto’s jazz musicians have played at such venues as the Bull's Head Barnes, Ronnie Scott’s, the 606 Jazz Club, The Pheasantry, Pizza Express Dean Street, Vortex, Ray’s Jazz, Charlie Wright’s Pizza on the Park, the RiverhouseBarn, The Dorchester, Claridges, Cannizzaro House, The Royal Albert Hall and Buckingham Palace as well as for numerous other gigs, functions, weddings and parties.
We play swing and Latin hits made famous by Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Sydney Bechet, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Jamie Cullum, Billie Holiday, Michael Bublé, Doris Day, Harry Connick Jnr, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Robbie Williams, Pink Martini, Norah Jones and many more…
