Come swing with Chance Devlin and the Livin’ In Swing Orchestra. Clink martinis and kick up your heels to all your favourite music from classic faves to current craze.

Swing music with a CURRENT flavour.  In recent years several movies have made swing music famous again.  We play songs from those movies!  The Great Gatsby, Burlesque, and swing renditions in the films by Adele, Beyonce and the Black Eyed Peas.  Also music from the Chicago movie soundtrack. 

Smaller version of band is also available.  Based in Calgary, we travel anywhere in Western Canada from Whistler to Winnipeg.
