John Deane and Faye Stringer are the founders and musical arrangers for Konnected Swing.


Konnected Swing started life as a Brass and wind quartet performing together at various events. Faye and John then decided to add a rhythem section and formed a swing band.


Konnected Swing became so popular and they started to be ask to also provide different styles of music and ensembles at various events that they were performing, so decided to provide affordable “Jazzy Duo”, which offers jazz classics, solos galore, as well as light classical "duos", and "trios".

(Fantastic for small halls, garden parties and budgets)
