About The London Gypsy Swing Band – professional gypsy swing & jazz band for hire in London
2 reviews

The London Gypsy Swing Band was born at the beginning of 2014 in London from an idea of the double bass player Fabio who had a passion for modern gypsy jazz.

Luckily he met Andrea and Alexis and they started re-arranging songs, new and old (no matter which genre they came from), bringing them back to life with a very personal interpretation in a swing and gypsy jazz style.

More information about The London Gypsy Swing Band

They also started to write their own tunes enjoying themselves a lot, jelling together musically and personally – a new band was born!

After recording a short demo, they travelled around England and Italy, playing at festivals and various venues.

They then started to work with few UK agencies and played at some important venues including Wembley Arena and Royal Albert hall, as well as other London venues like The Jamboree, The Wiltons, The Green Note, and the Half Moon.

In the Spring of 2014, they produced their first EP called Eclipsy which contains three original numbers and two famous tunes rearranged in The London Gypsy Swing Band style.

Eclipsy sold more than 1,000 copies on its first release, paving the way for the first album released on 1st February 2016 called Disco Manouche.

“Looking round at the audience I noticed most were tapping their feet or bobbing their head to the trio’s first number! Expert rhythm guitar, clean and swift lead and the all important swing of the bass saw several dancers on the small wooden floored area trying to keep up with the fast rhythm. Classics like ‘Caravan’ and ‘Limehouse Blues’ had the diners applauding appreciatively. Two hours of music, with a short break to let your feet have a rest the band finished with a flawless rendition of ‘Sweet Georgia Brown’. Sadly the evening was over for the music, but I was assured they will return, and I shall be there again giving support for these talented men!!”

“The London Gypsy Swing Band provided us with a most excellent and professional evening of music. Their playing was exemplary and the cries of ‘more’ at the end of the evening were an indication of their level of musicianship and ability to interact with the audience. Wedding receptions can be particularly difficult gigs but these guys totally nailed it. We have already booked them for our acoustic music club in December and eagerly look forward to their performance and the opportunity to share the experience with our regular audience."
