With a passion for music and a real talent for performing, Andy is the perfect choice to entertain your guests and make your event truly memorable.
Performing solo or with a live band, Andy Ellison pays homage to some of the worlds greatest performers with a set list that covers songs from the big band era including incredible renditions of hits from legends such as Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and Nat King Cole through to modern hits from Michael Buble. Andy also includes some of his own material and some specially produced tracks from the likes of Oasis, Amy Winehouse and The Overtones. Andy's set is thoroughly entertaining and is sure to include your guests' favourite tracks
Andy and his band have vast experience performing at charity events, gala dinners, award ceremonies, weddings and themed parties and my impressive client list includes The Groucho Club London, Matt and Phreds Jazz Club Manchester, The Hilton Hotel Manchester, The Institute of Directors and the 20th Century Fox, London/New York.

Andy will be happy to advise you on the best band setup for your venue and event.

» TestimonialsThe Stars of Swing played at our wedding in July and they were absolutely fantastic!! Andy spoke with my guests and got everyone involved. I would highly recommend them especially with the band, we had a six piece band as well as Andy and they really made my wedding reception complete. If anyone ever asks me to recommend a swing band I will be recommending you. Thank you very much again!!
- John and Claire Greenhalgh, July 2012
Fantastic performer, Fantastic band, appealed to all our guests, the dance floor was heaving and I would love to have you back for The Flame Awards 2014
- Chris Parry, Event Manager The Flame Awards 2013
I just wanted to personally thank you on behalf of everyone last night for a truly successful evening. Everyone really enjoyed the entertainment you provided and said it was the best Christmas Party they had been too! You are a very talented man and I will definitely be recommending you to people. Hopefully we can work together again in the future.
- Marie McQueen, Executive Assistant, 20th Century Fox
Andy provided the perfect entertainment for our staff summer party. Not only is he extremely talented, he engages the audience brilliantly and gets everybody involved. He set the tone of the evening perfectly, working to our timetable and requirements. He was a pleasure to work with, providing his own equipment and taking care of his own set up making the whole thing a breeze. We will certainly keep Andy in mind for our future functions world class
- Alfie Ayling, Inchcape Fleet Solutions
With Andy, the first thing that comes to mind is professional. He is very approachable and attentive artist, who not only delivered the goods, but engaged completely with our audience. Bringing individuals up on stage with him, shows how confident and personable he is and not afraid to share the limelight with others. His selection of tracks was varied and popular, with a good interaction with the crowd. Nothing but praise from all round.
- Queen Elizabeths Hall
Andy kindly joined us at Grosvenor Casino Swansea for our annual Wales Air Ambulance Charity evening where he enthralled our customers to the point that I am still getting phone calls asking when he will be returning! He was absolutely awesome and got everybody out of their seats and on to the dance floor, creating an atmosphere that was enjoyed by all. I will definitely be inviting him back and would strongly recommend him to anybody who's looking for a great night of entertainment at their establishment to follow suite and hire an amazing talent.
- Huw Lewis, Events & Marketing Co-ordinator, Grosvenor Casino Swansea.
We worked together at a fantastic charity event and Andy put everyone in the mood for a spectacular evening. Whether young or old everyone loves this style of music and I think Andy was born a few decades too late he would have really looked the part on those Vegas stages alongside Frank and the gang!
- Siny, Radio Presenter, 96.4FM The Wave, South West Wales.
Your performance was a resounding success. Everyone I've spoken to your enjoyed your choice of songs. A huge thanks from me for making it a successful night. The first ball I've had to arrange and thanks to your performance it was a huge success. The consensus of the committee is that we hope to use your services again. I will also be passing your business cards onto the appropriate people in other lodges of the masons. Thanks once again.
- Roger Kay, Regional Director, North West Masons
Thank you so much for the vital role you played in making our annual glitter ball such a great success. Our staff and clients had a fantastic evening and dancing the night away was the absolute highlight. All our guests have praised your performance, and a few have even asked for your details for their own events! We will definitely use your services again, so keep doing what you do and we wish you all the best.
- John Moran, Senior Partner, Parkin S Booth
I hired Andy for my 50th Birthday Party on 9th Jan 2010, he was absolutely brilliant, sounding just like Michael Bubl, everyone said what a brilliant singer he was, thank you once again.
- Diane Smith, 50th Birthday
Just a quick note to say thank you for performing at our wedding. You really made the day and our guests are still talking about you now. I would expect a few calls from some of my friends for their own weddings!
- Jennifer Hampson, Wedding, September2010
Andy you were fantastic! You had everyone up dancing and you made the evening party really go with a bang! Thanks also for singing our first dance, it was really special and something I will never, ever forget.
- Amy Cook, Wedding, June 2010
I would just like to say you were excellent at our wedding and we loved the Michael Bubl songs you performed. You sounded just like him!
