Act Profile

Swing And Style

Behind Swing And Style Duo stand Alex & Tony - both are highly professional musicians, who have worked successfully nationally and internationally.

Alex has studied Classical Percussion, Jazz Drums & Guitar at Music University in Graz/Austria, where he has earned a Master Of Arts degree. Since his relocation to England in 2002 he has played as a Jazz drummer with countless well respected musicians in the UK Jazz scene. He has worked as a lead singer & guitarist since the age of fifteen and his distinctive voice lends itself perfectly to the songs from the Great American Songbook.

Tony is a very experienced and versatile guitarist, who has played with top artists such as:
The Temptations, Bucks Fizz, Katrina & The Waves and some of the UK's finest Jazz musicians.
His Jazz playing in the tradition of Wes Montgomery and Barney Kessel is very tasteful and he always knows what to play for any occasion.


Although Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett & Nat King Cole songs are the core of the repertoire, Swing And Style Duo also perform arrangements of more contemporary songs by Paul Simon, Billy Joel, Sting & the Beatles.
