About this Act

Café Manouche are a London based vintage style French jazz and swing act. This young band comprises of three brothers and some friends and can create the perfect atmosphere for your event. They are very versatile and can provide great background music that will compliment your event perfectly, or they can liven things up and fill the dance floor keeping a great diverse set of different tempos and styles.

Playing an ever growing repertoire of music from 1910-1950s including many jazz and Swing standards, Gypsy jazz, French waltz musette and traditional gypsy music with added touches of Latin bosa nova, New Orleans, be-bop and blues. Played and improvised so no two shows are ever the same and in fact they can even tailor their sets to one era (I.e 1920s/1930s etc...) or to a particular style (i.e French themed events).
