We specifically indicated that we wanted them for our event and Stefano sent a comprehensive proposal and a confirmation for our date within 1 hour of our submission. Subsequent communications were smooth and timely.
We did request they learn 2 songs (one a vintage Broadway show tune and another vintage Nat King Cole song) which they accompanied me in singing for our startled friends (many didn’t know of my “hidden talent”. My thanks to them for making me sound so good at my advanced age!!!
If you are considering Lula Soul & the Swinger’s Tune for your event, don’t think about it – just do it!!! You won’t be disappointed.
Choosing them was one of the luckiest decision we made when organizing our wedding. It was not easy. Living in Chicago, we learned to love swing and blues, but we were afraid to end up with a below-than-average band. However, from the very first moment at the “Lanificio” in Rome, the location of our pre-wedding party, we realized how marvelous the Swinger’s Tune band is. Right from the start, we were enchanted by their music and by Francesca’s voice. As the party was going on, we got to know the components of the band better and better. Incredibly good people, of the kind that you would like to spend a night with, chatting about music, politics, lifestyle. There was not much time to talk, as the music started again. They entertained us; they made us dance, sing. We enjoyed our pre-wedding party thoroughly.
We were so happy about the Swinger’s tune that we decided to have them play again. This time at our wedding banquet, at the Castello di Rosciano. They quickly adapted to the different environment, more family oriented than that of the Lanificio, without compromising the level of their music. Our families and friends enjoyed their repertoire, no matter whether they were dancing or just listening. Francesca so enchanted my little cousin as she let her sing her favorite song, with all the band playing along. There might be other great musicians around, but only a few of them are also generous and spontaneous as the Swinger’s Tune. They are highly recommended!
