Superb gypsy jazz trio playing a lively and eclectic mixture of Latin and jazz standards, with some surprising pop covers thrown into the mix, too. Extra musicians and solo guitar sets available.

Bemsha Swing draw on many genres of music, reinterpreting all of them in a gypsy jazz style. Fronted by a virtuoso guitarist, backed up by a dynamic rhythm section of double bass and acoustic guitar, they can provide vintage background music or a centrepiece performance for any event.

Between them, band members have performed on television for BBC and ITV shows, on BBC Radio 2 and at festivals around the UK. They've performed with famous names including Ade Edmondson and Jools Holland, and have livened up countless weddings, private parties and corporate events.
