Like many other big bands, in its early days the Swan Big Band focused on the music of the grand masters such as Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman and Count Basie. The versatile ensemble would not do its name justice if it left classic swing numbers out of its repertoire. But the Swan Big Band is expanding its repertoire constantly and cultivates a broad range of styles from Latin and traditional dance rhythms to funk and modern classics. The renowned band leader Erwin Lorant, for many years a member of the Pepe Lienhard Orchestra, has fronted the Swan Big Band with huge success for over ten years.
