About the band

The Pilsner Jazz Band, an eight-piece swing orchestra from Pilsen, plays jazz classics from the 1930s and 1940s, some of which are true to the original and some of which are a little more modern. The repertoire includes compositions by the most well-known and celebrated greats of the swing scene: Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and many more.

Swing is music for every occasion

In 13 years of regular concert activity, we have taken part in more than 350 events that have been filled with many unique, unforgettable moments. With joy we remember the aerial acrobatics show in Germany, the festivals in Latvia, Sweden, Switzerland and other European countries, playing at a burlesque show, the concerts in Washington and in the only true heart of New York: Manhattan. But we will also remember countless company celebrations, balls, weddings and other family celebrations, retro parties, dance festivals, veteran events and much more for a long time.

Swing suits every occasion you want. Our repertoire, which lasts six hours, mainly contains compositions from the 30s and 40s of the last century, but we can also get your celebrations rolling with the music styles boogie and rock'n'roll. We are also happy to play rhythms for you that are suitable for classical dances - waltz, cha-cha, samba, rumba and others.

We are fully equipped with sound system. Our sound equipment is more than sufficient for a medium-sized hall. From the organizer's point of view, we don't need anything other than ordinary sockets, we take care of everything else ourselves.

Do not hesitate to contact us and ask us for more information. We have already been to Latvia, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary, we will come to you too!
