Stylish and charismatic 4-piece band, bringing the sound of 1930's Paris crashing into the modern world of contemporary pop tunes! Suitable for lounging or dancing.

The band's unique busking style combines the sublime talents of three astonishing musicians (rhythm guitar/vocals, piano and double bass) to put a contemporary twist on a classic 1930’s gypsy jazz sound. Whether entertaining clients in a busy city bar or creating a beautiful mellow ambiance for an early evening event, The Gypsy Tones never fails to capture an audience.

Band members have worked with musicians such at Justin Timberlake, Mark Ronson, 50cent, Katherine Jenkins and Russell Watson, and toured the UK with some of the country’s biggest bands, playing events such as the O2 wireless weekend and venues such as The Clapham Grand. International performances include gigs in New York, Asia, and a recent string of gigs in Europe.

The band base themselves in the North West of England, but travel nationally and internationally to entertain wedding clients and corporate clients alike, who are looking for something a bit different.

What people say Help

  • The guys were absolutely amazing, they were loved by our guests and the dance floor was full from start to finish. They even played a special request for us and the 5-piece band was perfect for our venue. Couldn't recommend these guys anymore they were brilliant!!

    Matt, Wedding, Manchester, April 2016
  • The band were great: really friendly and laid back. They sounded brilliant, they were just our type of music. Helped make our wedding day! We Would highly recommend them.

    Simon, Wedding, West Midlands, May 2016
  • The Gypsy Tones were excellent! From the sample music I could find on line I was worried that the atmosphere would be very cool but chilled. The atmosphere was still cool but lively. The band and their music were a pleasure to listen to. If I could organise some sort of function again I'd definitely have them back.

    Geogre, Wedding, November 2015
  • Over the moon, the band were amazing! 10/10. Everyone kept commenting all night about how great and original the band were. I would highly recommend The Gypsy Tones for a mixture of chilled tunes and real dancy numbers that got everyone up on the dancefloor. Nobody wanted the music to end and the band kindly did an encore! The songs they played all had their own unique twist and you could see people dancing thinking 'I know this one' and then they'd work out what it was. Brilliant, highly recommended. Happy I went for the 5-piece as well, I think without the drums and electric guitar it would have been more of an acoustic / chilled set but the full band was perfect.

    Paul, Wedding, Cheshire, May 2015
  • The Gypsy Tones are an excellent wedding band. They added a huge amount to the relaxed and fun festival theme of our wedding. From start to finish the dance floor was filled and they did a wonderful rendition of Crazy in Love for our first dance. When searching for our band we had to sit through hours of poor Amy Winehouse and Kings of Leon covers, The Gypsy Tones stood head and shoulder above all the others with their lively, fun and original song covers. And they have an excellent Double Bassist.

    Steven, Wedding, Devon, August 2014
  • We thought The Gypsy Tones were fantastic! Just what we expected and we want to see them again asap.

    Amy, Wedding, Gloucestershire, July 2014
  • The Gypsy Tones are a fantastic band and something a little bit different. Their style helped to set the tone of my Roaring Twenties inspired 30th birthday party while still keeping the music up to date and the dance floor full. The music was varied and catered to the many age groups present and was certainly not intrusive for those who wanted to have a conversation while others danced the night away. Many of my guests commented on how original and talented the band were, some even wishing they could purchase a CD. The guys were very polite and professional throughout the evening and kept my guests and I very much entertained, I can't thank them enough for travelling so far to attend and helping to make the night so memorable and fun. I've already been recommending The Gypsy Tones and of course Function Central, who helped to ensure I had all the information I needed, made the booking process go so smoothly and kept me informed throughout, I can't thank you all enough and I will certainly be in touch again for any future events.

    Thanks again to you and your colleagues for helping to make my landmark birthday very memorable and I hope to deal with you again in the future.

  • Just wanted to thank you so much for your fantastic performance at our wedding this year. Everyone had an amazing time, and your music throughout the day and into the evening was just superb! Having you play as I walked down the aisle was a personnel highlight and people are still talking about how good you guys were!

    Hannah, Wedding, Lancashire
  • Thank you so much for making our special day unforgettable! The band was first class...What more can we say. We can’t wait to get you back to play at our Christmas party next year!
