Swan Big Band

Wie bei vielen andern Bigbands, stand zu Beginn auch bei der Swan Big Band die Musik der Altmeister wie Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman und Count Basie im Zentrum. Die vielseitige Formation würde dem Namen nicht gerecht, wenn sie auf die klassischen Swing-Nummern verzichten würde. Doch die Swan Big Band baut ihr Repertoire laufend aus. Das Orchester pflegt eine breite Stilpalette, die sich von südamerikanischen und traditionellen Tanzrhythmen über Funk bis zu Modern Classic erstreckt. Der bekannte Bandleader Erwin Lorant, ein langjähriges Mitglied des Pepe Lienhard Orchesters, leitet die Swan Big Band sehr erfolgreich seit mehr als zehn Jahren.
