In addition to great music, Colorado Swing has an extensive list of media contacts to help promote your public event in news publications, event calendars, and on multiple social media sites.  We maintain our own confidential mailing list of hundreds of fans who have asked to be informed about our upcoming performances. The band typically pays for itself with the added attendance at your event.  We offer a discount for local non-profit fundraisers that use our name in the advertising.
