The Darling Buds of May are an exciting Perth based swing sextet, exploring the nostalgic sounds of yesteryear. The group is primarily a swingin’ dance band, a local and interstate favourite amongst the swing dancing community.
The combination of the punchy horns and swingin’ rhythm section with the sultry tones of Jessie Gordon will have you swooning in your seats or dancing in the aisles. Both are appropriate and either is just fine with the band!
Although the band has an extensive repertoire covering many musical genres, they specialise in 1920s dixieland jazz, 1940s and 1950s swing, 1950s and 1960s rock ‘n’ roll and blues. The Darling Buds of May are a versatile band for any event and will have your audience dancing and singing along to your favourite retro songs.
With many local gigs, as well as rural and interstate tours under their belt, The Darling Buds of May have many combined years of professional performance experience. Their stage philosophy is all about having a passion for the music, laughter and joy in its presentation and creating an experience to share with their audience.
