Out front on lead vocals

This man needs no introduction really. You may recognise him from TV, from the R&B world, from the Indie Rock Scene, or even from just being a dam good lookin fella from Dublin.

Simply the best front man in the country - Mr Luke Thomas........And a colourful character he is indeed.


On the Joanna

Again this individual needs no introduction. In many different countries he has proved, that he is the undisputed king of the piano bar scene. His style of piano playing has never been witnessed before, nor will it again.

It is his charm and charisma, that will end up putting The Swing Cats in jail. On the Keys, The "REAL" piano man.....Mr Charco Bernard


On the Double Bass

What we are dealing with here is an experienced, polished and very cool individual indeed. Phased by nothing at all, he brings funk, jazz, jive and soul to the band, on the lowest end of the frequency scale, introducing The Ace of the Bass......Mr Simon McVeigh


On the drums

You will have heard his rhythm on many a famous record as he's one of Ireland's leading session drummers, a gentleman by day but a percussion maestro by night, he is without doubt the back bone behind the Swing Cats knock out punch.....Mr Dave Keegan
