The Resets are a quirky trio from Manchester, who bring a vibrant, gypsy jazz-inspired take to the modern party band. They blend medleys of classic pop, rock, R&B, reggae and hip hop all with a swinging jazz flavour.

The band is available as a gypsy jazz trio featuring guitar and double bass but regularly expand to an acoustic quartet or quintet, featuring female vocals, percussion or violin.

Their repertoire ranges from early 1930/40s jazz classics right through to modern pop music and is constantly evolving with new versions of great songs, from Django to Nirvana to The Rolling Stones to Britney Spears.

Energetic, fun, friendly and incredibly professional. We wanted them to play all night! Nilly & Mark, Wedding, London

The quartet or quintet line-ups, fronted by either violin or vocals has become the band's most popular line-up. The band offer a choice between two outstanding female vocalists as well as percussionist for extra rhythm.

The band has travelled nationwide and played in mainland Europe too. All the members are full time professional musicians with many years of experience of gigging all over the world.

The perfect act for those looking for something a little more alternative/vintage/retro for their event.
