1.  Evan Ayres and the Swing Kings

Evan Ayres and the Swing Kings are Great Southern’s premier swing band, performing originals through to iconic jazz songs from the greats such as Fred Astaire through to Bublé. Expect a high energy show that will make you want to get up and dance or make you listen intently and cry.

Bring back those old memories and create whole new ones. This band has a famous destiny with the release of their first E.P, ‘In Love With You’. The magical crooning voice of Evan Ayres backed by the mighty Swing Kings (and Queens) will guarantee a performance to remember.
