Hire a Gypsy Swing Band

This niche genre, also known as jazz manouche or hot club jazz, is believed by many to have been started by virtuoso guitarist Django Reinhardt – and many of Reinhardt's compositions have found their way into our gypsy jazz bands' repertoires. Our gypsy jazz bands also touch upon the work of Gabor Szabo, Martin Taylor, violinist Stephane Grappelli, as well as jazz standards from the Great American Songbook – plus several non-jazz songs – embellished with frenetic Romani rhythms.

Our gypsy jazz bands typically consist of various arrangements of players of such instruments as rhythm and lead guitar, violin, double bass, sometimes drums or other percussion, and is often largely instrumental. But don't worry if you think your guests will need something more than clustered chords and arpeggios from a far off land – our flexible and accommodating gypsy swing bands have draft members in and out if you'd prefer to have a vocalist or two at the helm. Just let us know what you have in mind and we'll do our best to oblige!
