The Swing Era Characteristics of Swing Bands and Sweet Bands. Swing Bands - Notable swing bands- Count Basie Orchestra, Duke Ellington Orchestra, Fletcher Henderson Orchestra, Benny Goodman Orchestra, Chick Webb Orchestra. - Swing bands featured soloists more than the sweet bands. However, solos in swing bands were typically short. - Swing bands play with a more intense swing feeling than sweet bands . This was in part due to audience appeal. Conservative audiences wanted to hear music that shared similarities with Eastern Classical music, and turn of the century society bands. Likewise, young people (dancers) wanted to hear and dance to music that had a heavy swing feel, and was more raucous than music being played by sweet bands . - Typically , swing bands were made up of African American musicians. There are exceptions to this however. Sweet Bands (also known as Society Bands) - Notable sweet bands- Paul Whiteman Orchestra, Glenn Miller Orchestra, Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians, Les Brown and his Band of Renown.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
