“A truly authentic voice that rivals some of the great soul singers of the 60’s”
Jamie Cullum

“I’ve been in this business long enough to know when an artist truly has it & Si Cranstoun has truly got the gift!”
Alexander O’Neal

Si Cranstoun is an original modern day underground superstar that harks back to the golden era of Rock’n’Roll. ‘Dynamo’ has an infectious groove and Si’s vocals are just too darn supreme for superlatives.

Si Cranstoun is much like the old bandleaders too, his passion for music also sees him write, produce and record all of his own tracks. As half of dynamic duo The Dualers (two UK Top 30 hits ‘Kiss On The Lips’, ‘Truly Madly Deeply’), Si was personally trained to the level of “Grand Master” in the art of songwriting by Grammy award-winning Graham Lyle (who penned hits for Michael Jackson, Tina Turner). Aside from his incendiary guitar and thunderous vocals on stage, Si prides himself on a high octane dance routine that crosses between Justin Timberlake and Gene Kelly’s.

Si and his band have played major European festivals including headlining The Big Rhythm Rumble in Germany, and The Rhythm Riot (Imelda May). Si’s band features some of London’s most revered musicians including Mike Watts on Drums (drummer for Grammy nominee James Hunter) and Stewart Pannaman on double Bass (bass player for American R&B legend Nappy Brown).

Apart from hosting the finest bands available, The Swing Dance Company has built a splendid reputation for running live music events. The team have as much fun preparing the event as guests have attending!

The venue offers a spacious dance floor, ample seating and a fully licensed in-house bar operated by dancers, which enables us to keep the drinks prices in check. So the evening is perfect for you whether you prefer to dance non-stop or just kick back, socialise and enjoy the live music and entertainments. Being just a few minutes away from the A27/M27 near the Eastern Road in Portsmouth, the venue is easy to reach from far and wide – we always attract dancers from all over the South!

The band will be supported by swinging DJs plus much more. The in-house team will play a great mix of swing, rock’n’roll and rhythm and blues tracks. The evening will kick start with a warm-up class, suitable for all levels. Don’t miss out on this fantastic night of live entertainment, music and dancing, book your tickets now!
