About this Act

An authentic gypsy jazz group with a twist........................

A complete catalogue of unique and original arrangements of well known pop tunes performed in a gypsy jazz style!

Gypsy jazz (also known as gypsy swing or hot club jazz) is the jazz style pioneered by Django Reinhardt in the 1930s. The music combines the red hot swing of early american jazz, the passion and fire of flamenco, and the suave sophistication of Café Paris lounge music into an irresistible musical feast. Gypsy jazz is the ultimate in continental cool!

Whether its vintage chic or festival fun, Gypsies of Bohemia can provide the perfect backdrop to your event. Their performances can conjure the mellow atmosphere of a parisian cafe or capture the hedonistic mood of a foot-stomping camp fire jam session, delivered with trademark virtuosity by these incredible musicians. The group provide a package that captures the chic sophistication of 1930’s gypsy jazz whilst keeping one foot firmly planted in the present. Watch as your party guests tap their feet to clever re-workings of Britney Spears, Beyonce, Maroon 5, Radiohead and more.

The group are based in the north west but have performed all over the UK playing events such as Glastonbury, Latitude, Lounge on the farm, International Gypsy guitar festival, Kendall Calling, Festival Number 6, and Manchester jazz festival. Band members have performed alongside artists such as Guy Garvey, Jesca Hoop, Imelda May, Plan B and gypsy guitar legends Stochelo Rosenberg and Biel Ballister. TV and radio credits include T4, The Other Voices (Ireland), Marc Riley BBC6 and Radcliffe and Maconie Radio 2. Corporate clients include Gieves & Hawkes, Red Bull Formula One, Bloomberg, ITV and Deutsche Bank.

Looking for something a little different? Humorous, charismatic and highly entertaining, this group of incredible musicians will make sure your event is one to remember!
