40+ Incredible Jazz Bands for Your Great Gatsby Themed Party

The roaring twenties saw jazz as the de rigueur for any lavish party or glamorous celebration, so it comes as no surprise that it featured as the musical backdrop to the renowned novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby.

Set in the ‘age of Jazz’, this epic piece of literature inspired the movie rendition directed by Baz Luhrmann which, not only captured the attention and imagination of a new generation, but also went on to inspire a whole genre of themed parties in reminiscence of this glitzy era.

Jazz & Swing Modern Crossovers

You may have noticed that some of our jazz & swing bands have cleverly adapted their performances by reimagining modern hits to include a 1920s twist! This reinvention was popularised by the well-known band Postmodern Jukebox, who have over the years, written arrangements for a number of modern & popular songs in the style of both jazz and swing.

You can now have your flapper girls dancing to a 1920s version of All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor or Crazy In Love by Beyonce whilst still keeping within the theme of your glamorous Gatsby style event.

With the reinvention of this popular era, the 1920s never sounded so good! Great Gatsby themed parties have since been soaring, whether it’s a birthday party, a corporate function, an New Year's Eve event or a private party, everyone is looking to dress up in the nines and recreate the era that was at the height of sophistication.
