The Silver Ghosts live performance
The repertoire evokes the breathless and high spirited dance gigs of the 1920s 30s and 40s. A weave of quirky, upbeat numbers like Rose Murphy's 'Busy Line', the risqué 'Jack I'm Mellow', polite dance orchestrations like 'My Woman' and Harry Warren's sophisticated 'Too Many Tears', together with some familiar standards but performed in their original 'pre cold war', jazz ensemble style. The outfit is normally a 7 piece swing orchestra, but will be performing as a quintet on this occasion.
Over the past couple of years the outfit has performed at high profile venues like Ronnie Scott's bar, The 100 Club, and The Savoy as well as having the fortuity to have recorded a session for the BBC at the beautiful Art Deco premises at Bush House, just before the latter moved to their new location.

In the period to which the band are paying tribute, larger ensembles that were able to play 'unplugged' were naturally much more common, which is why the band remain committed to performing as the seven piece lineup that they have formed. Despite the changes in culture, economics and technology, The Silver Ghosts are committed to recreating the authentic ensemble swing jazz sound.

Remaining faithful to the smart sartorial spirit of the period of the music, the musicians observe that the look is an important part of the ensemble's performance. In keeping with the era of song and dance, some of the band also know a few partner dance moves like the Charleston and the Lindy Hop. Consequently, when performing to a dance floor, they are liable to swing out as part of their act.
