"The city's coolest, quirkiest retro jazz group!"  The Dallas Observer

The Singapore Slingers is Matt Tolentino's flagship ensemble, and the group has been under his direction since late 2007. Based in Dallas, Texas orchestra is a leading source for pre-swing American dance music, nationally recognized for their authenticity. The Slingers boast 18 members, and the arrangements, attire, and even many of the instruments, are period accurate. 

The Slingers are a true orchestra, complete with a string section, with a repertoire hundreds of tunes deep, featuring spanning ragtime to the roots of swing, with the biggest emphasis on the 1920s and 1930s. This music is not a museum piece, but a live, breathing testament to America's treasured musical past. The orchestra takes great delight in performing for their audiences, and they hope to play for you sometime - at a dance, a concert, or perhaps your very own affair!
