Django's Jive is a traditional gypsy jazz and acoustic swing band available as a duo, trio or a quartet line-up. Their most popular format is as a trio consisting of two guitars and a double bass.

The repertoire of the band combines traditional swing and Django Reinhardt tracks with modern jazz while also collaborating with a team of talented singers, performing classic pop by the likes of Neil Young and Nirvana, in a vintage gypsy style.

The line-up of the band is compact and as an acoustic act, they are a perfect fit for events where background music is required. They can also be interactive with the audience as a main show for vintage swing parties and dance events.

The band’s quirky, jazzy upbeat style of playing always gets guests moving and provides an interesting talking point at events.

As a guitar duo they are especially popular at London's wine and cocktail bars, performing on a regular basis in places such as the Victualler in Wapping, El Gaucho, Maison St. Germain in Soho, Primo Bar, Chino Latino, and The Park Plaza Hotel to mention but a few.

“Django Jive were good fun and set the right mood for the evening!”

Keith, 70th Birthday Celebration, Cookham Reach Sailing Club in Kent, August 2019

“The band were perfect for our wedding particularly the great rendition of 'All You Need Is Love' for our first dance. Many of our guests commented positively about the quality of the musicians and the relaxed glowing atmosphere their music created.”

Michael & Sarah, Wedding in Worcestershire, July 2018

“We were completely blown away by Django's Jive, having looked and listened to a number of bands on the function central website we took the plunge and selected Django's Jive - thankfully they were available. Still having not heard them live, and as good as the website is for comparison and selection you can never be completely sure... however, I have to say they were just amazing - and although I may be slightly biased as it was our wedding, we have had numerous friends and family say the same thing. Would highly recommend them!”

Kate, Wedding in London, May 2018

“Thanks so much for playing at our party in Central London the other day. The place was packed out and everyone was enjoying the music. You've got an amazingly professional sound for a three-piece band, and you sang beautifully.”

Douglas, Birthday Party in London, April 2018

“Django’s Jive were brilliant! They really helped to create the perfect vibe for our wedding. The guys are great musicians and a really friendly bunch!”

Ed, Wedding, Narborough Hall Gardens in Norfolk, October 2017
