SWING BAND IN BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND
It’s hard to compare Dave Martin to anyone, but waiter, if you please.. “Two shots of Italian Dean Martin croon, a slice of Frank Sinatra swing, blend that together with a healthy dash of Buble and you have it”!
One of the finest swing voices to emerge on Northern Ireland’s music scene, Dave’s deep, velvety vocal styling has been shaped by all the great singers of swing.
Dave Martin’s swing band, The Casino Cats, boasts the finest swing & jazz musicians around, with piano, saxophone, trumpet, double bass and drums. They blend a vast repertoire of the swing classics from Frank Sinatra to Michael Bublé with many modern songs in their unique swing style. Their energetic floor show and swingin’ rhythms have been featured at many corporate events and weddings over the years throughout Ireland and the UK.
As Dave reaches the tender age of 30, he looks to the words of Dean Martin to sum up how he feels about his well seasoned music career: “I’m just getting started, Frank”!
