5-piece vintage gypsy jazz band featuring two guitars and splendid female vocals, with a repertoire of jazz and swing standards from the 1920s-50s

Special offer! Up to 35% off all quotes for October to March and for most Sundays to Thursdays throughout the year.

This exciting gypsy jazz & swing band plays old-fashioned tunes in the distinctive style of Django Reinhardt. A perfect choice for vintage-themed wedding, 20s or 30s parties, big or small.

Normally a 5-piece, the band can also offer a variety of duo and trio options. (Duos: vocals & guitar; two guitars; or guitar & accordion. Trio: two guitars plus double bass.)
