Melbourne French Gypsy Swing Jazz Band are one of Australia’s most authentic interpreters of the wild rhythms and passion of 1930s Parisian hot jazz and the beautiful melodies of classic French chanson - sung en français, bien sûr.
The band features a four piece ensemble comprised of vocals/guitar, Accordion, double-bass and the extraordinary talents of internationally-acclaimed manouche guitarist.
The bands repertoire specialises in the timeless songs of Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet and Serge Gainsbourg and Jean Sablon and the unique sounds of Django Reinhardt.
The group are available for private functions, weddings, festivals, corporate events, themed nights, special occasions, birthdays etc…
The band were great ... it was a pity that we could not open the doors as the sound of everyone inside at the bar drowned them out a little.
They arrived and set up quickly and same at the end, they were very professional and lovely to talk to. I enjoyed the music very much and the feedback was positive.
