Diversity. Fun. Elegance.
The Mixers bring each, in just the right amount, to your event.
From Jazz standards to hard-hitting funk and rock tunes.
The band keeps folks dancing and the band REALLY has fun being the driving force behind a great party.
The dress, the stage appearance, the lighting, the right volume...all contribute to a elegant event.
The band was founded in 1994 by Charleston drummer Mike McSwain, who plays drums and handles business affairs for the group. The MiXeRs play only private events, most of which are wedding receptions and corporate events. But the band also plays anniversary parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthday parties, and reunions.
Mike contributes the band’s busy schedule to the versatility of the group. “I think the biggest reason brides and corporate planners are happy with us is that we can create elegance in the beginning of an event, but we’re able to shift gears when the time is right and create a party and dance atmosphere. Practically every event we play begins with jazz standards as background music, but winds up being a heck of a party, “ says McSwain.
Another factor in the band’s success is the fact that the players are full-time musicians. Playing music is not something the band just does on the side. Mike’s clients know that this is his full-time profession, and that he has the time and willingness to give their party the proper attention. He knows that planning a wedding reception or corporate event can be mind-boggling with details, and he works hard to help the client feel the musical details are all under control.
