A Quick Look


The Emerald City Swing Orchestra is a 18-piece band with an extensive musical library that features classic songs of the era of the Big Bands, such as Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Woody Herman, Stan Kenton and Buddy Rich, contemporary artists such as Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Van Morrison, Steely Dan, Sade and Carlos Santana, and vocal songs of classic jazz singers like Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Bobby Darin, Nat Cole and Michael Buble. 

The Emerald City Swing Orchestra provides musical entertainment to the Dublin and Central Ohio communities, while endeavoring to contribute to the preservation of the quintessential American art form, big band music. We showcase the original big band form that represented popular music in the era before, during and after the Second World War, as well as several variations that have evolved in the decades since.

The Emerald City Swing Orchestra has an extensive library of ballroom dance music and performs the last Friday of every month at the Emerald City Ballroom in Dublin. 

We are available to make your special event extra special.
