Swing & Rat Pack Bands in Leicestershire

The Rat Pack was originally used to refer to a group of actors, including Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford. The name was also used to refer to the swing music of the era, of which Sinatra and Martin in particular were a part.

Swing music really began to develop in the 1930s in the United States, and had found its feet by the end of the decade, utilising a strong rhythm of double bass with a prominent brass section and quick lilting tempos. The first pioneers of the genre included Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller, with artists such as Sinatra coming along later as the genre became more mainstream in the United States and around the world.

Pop and swing fused in the 50s and 60s, leading on to what we now know as rock and roll, with pop vocalists including Sinatra, Dobby Darin and Matt Monro reaching huge prominence. Today, swing and rat pack bands in Leicestershire are bigger than ever, enjoying a modern revival which DG Music can bring to your party.
