About The Tweed Jackets – professional jazz & swing band based in London, UK
The Tweed Jackets are a gypsy jazz trio forged in the beating heart of London's famous swing music scene through a shared love of Django Reinhardt and the sound of the Selmer guitar.
Performing music it’s impossible not to love with irrepressible youthful energy, the trio is among Europe's most respected virtuoso jazz-swing performance groups.
The wonderful chemistry that comes from the band’s longstanding friendship both on and off stage, as well as their sheer love of playing together, guarantees beaming smiles and tapping toes at every show!
Bringing a fresh and modern take to swing music’s most fun and vivacious style, The Tweed Jackets’ set fuses the mid-century sound of Europe and America, intertwining the core repertoire of gypsy guitar legend Django Reinhardt together with the band’s own take on swing greats.
The band is often joined by talented friends and virtuoso guests from among the elite of London’s musicians and singers, expanding their trio lineup to a 6-piece band and beyond for a foot-thumping swing dance set.
Their customisable and adaptable line up makes these guys the perfect choice for any occasion, big or small.
