Fabulous HoneysSwing Time with the Fabulous Honeys

The Friends of Southwark presents Swing Time with the Fabulous Honeys, a Sunday afternoon full of wing music with glitz, glamour and style.

The fabulous honeys are London’s sweetest new big band playing exciting arrangements of mostly swing music to get your fingers clicking and your toes tapping. You’ll love the Honey’s set which mixes big nad sounds with a few slower tunes and some funk and blues to spice things up a little.

For one afternoon only we’ll be hearing their fabulous sounds at the Bandstand in Southwark Park, so direct your feet to the sunny side of the park as they’ll certainly get you in the mood for swinging!

The Fabulous Honeys: The Music

An eighteen-piece big band, playing classic tunes from the swing era and arrangements of more contemporary tunes with a repertoire that includes songs made famous by the giants of jazz; including Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and Louis Armstrong.

Swing music is great to dance to, and we frequently fill the floor at our gigs. We typically offer a balanced set, mixing in a few slower tunes to give the dancers a rest between songs. We also offer some funk and blues, to spice things up a little.

The Fabulous Honeys: The Players

They are an amateur band based in South London and the players have plenty of experience performing, and a love of swing music. The Fabulous Honeys is different from all other bands. If you want to be involved then join at the start before all the places are taken
