Since 1984, City Swing, an 18- piece big band, has dazzled audiences and dancers by bringing to life the sounds of big band jazz. City Swing has cherry picked the best charts from the books of swing era greats like Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton and Glen Miller.

Conducted by featured trumpet soloist Bradley Connlain, City Swing’s two decades of credits include performances at Herbst Theater, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Beaux Arts Ball, the Galleria, the Fashion Center, Marines Memorial Club, the Miyako, the Meridien, the Presidio Officers’ Club, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and countless other ballrooms, street fairs, private parties and events held in and around the Bay Area.

Along with a calendar of regular dance and fundraising events, City Swing has performed for a wide array of special invitation events. In 1986, the band was honored to be declared the City of San Francisco’s “Goodwill Ambassadors” to the ‘86 World Expo in Vancouver, B.C., by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. In 1988, City Swing performed at City Hall for the Mayor’s Inaugural Ball, and in 2000, City Swing was flown to Palm Springs as the centerpiece of a gala benefit for the AIDS Assistance Program.

In 2001, City Swing performed on the top deck of the S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien, providing WWII-era music for this National Liberty Ship Memorial on its annual Fleet Week cruise on the Bay. In 2005, City Swing performed as the house band for the Imperial Court of San Francisco’s 40th Anniversary Ball at the Gift Center Pavilion.

Whether performing for company parties, fundraisers, social gatherings or black- tie affairs, City Swing with jazzes up any event.
