We are an ambitious Big Band and currently play around 4-6 gigs a year. We would be happy to play more often, anything up to 12 gigs a year. The programmes are compiled individually for each performance, and include some numbers from our wide-ranging repertoire, as well as new titles each time. We play not only classic swing but also Latin, funk and popular songs. The arrangements tend to be demanding and offer plenty of scope for good solos. Our highlight of the last few years has been our regular appearance in the largest dance hall at the Polyball, where we have kept the crowds tapping their toes until 5 am.
Most of the musicians in the Swan Big Band come from the Lake Zurich region, but we also have some members from Zurich city and Lucerne.
Our Band Leader is Erwin Lorant who toured for many years with the Pepe Lienhard Band. His commitment and contacts guide us ever deeper into the world of swing.
Important: no concert fees are paid to the members as we use that income to cover our costs (band leader, administration, marketing, recordings, music, deps etc.).
Alternating full & sectional rehearsals.
Full rehearsals are held every other Monday at 19.45 in Horgen (neaer Horgen Oberdorf station).
Sectionals are held by arrangement with each section leader.
