1930s & gypsy jazz bands

Hire a gypsy jazz band to recreate the sounds of Paris in the 1930s

Our gypsy swing bands specialise in the music of the Quintette du Hot Club de France, led by the iconic guitar and violin frontline of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. They also perform songs by other "jazz manouche" and musette artists, as well as gypsy jazz arrangements of modern pop hits.



Available as duos, trios and quartets, our selection of gypsy jazz bands for hire offer a stylish and authentic recreation of vintage 30s jazz. Playing swinging classics like ‘Misty’ and ‘Caravan’, they are ideal for mood-enhancing background music. With their jazzy arrangements of contemporary pop songs, they can also crank up the intensity and get the audience on their feet.

Since our gypsy jazz bands perform with acoustic guitars and usually don’t require vocal amplification, they can perform completely unplugged, making them the perfect background entertainment at garden parties and outdoor events with no access to a power supply.

These enormously popular 1930s-themed bands will get toes tapping and fingers clicking!
