The Silver Ghosts are a 7 piece swing ensemble performing numbers that evoke the hot, breathless and high spirited dance gigs of the 1920s, 30s & 40s.
The band was an idea inspired by several club nights around town where a community of swing dancers, and people who just like the vintage fashion and style dress up and do jazz period partner dancing (the Lindy Hop, Charleston, Jitterbug etc) and the DJs play nothin but original 78s on period equipment. The band started out as a duet with founder member Mark (The Colonel) on the trumpet and Karl (Caps) learning the ukulele. The band evolved over the subsequent months until it settled as a seven piece ensemble, giging at swing events, functions and as a wedding band.
