April 21st

Swing Manouche

Music from 7:30pm, £7

Swing Manouche were formed by Mick Shoulder, the leader and songwriter of former gypsy jazz outfit "Djangologie". Continuing to work with guitarist Giles Strong he recruited clarinet and bass to form a band based upon Django Reinhardt's second group; the Nouveau Quintette du Hot Club de France. ​Giving a slightly harder and more modern edge to the music than his previous ensemble, Swing Manouche are a hard swinging gypsy jazz outfit. Authentic originals are still very much a main ingredient but Swing Manouche are as likely to take from more modern gypsy players as well as Django and traditional musette. Already sought out as backing band for Paris-based gypsy jazz violin star, Daniel John Martin they are quickly making a name for themselves in gypsy jazz circles.
