Dean Pratt, Janelle Bernardo, Soren Hansen, Laura Ingham, Eric Bernabe and Mikko Heininen, make up Swing Revue, and you won’t find a more energetic and passionate swing band in the UAE at the moment
We are the UAE’s first and most authentic swing band and have been playing at venues across the country for the last four years. We play every Thursday night at Jazz@Pizza Express in JLT and Monday nights at Seafire, Atlantis The Palm.
Being part of the swing music scene and watching it continue to grow and be appreciated by audiences in the UAE has been amazing.
The UAE is such a multicultural country. As a band we have five different nationalities, but all share a common love of swing music. Music is so universal and brings people together.
We love artists like Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, The Andrew Sisters and Postmodern Jukebox.
We strive to be authentic and true to the style of music we play, not only by how we sound, but by how we dress onstage and the energy we bring to our performances. We want to make sure that our love of the style comes through in all aspects of the band.
In 2018, we’re looking forward to continuing to spread the love of the vintage era to the UAE audience and playing more incredible gigs!
