About this Act

The brilliantly named Viper Swing are an Edinburgh based vintage and gypsy jazz band who comprise of outstanding musicians who can go out as their standard four piece or as duo, trio or even a five piece band.

Their guitar and violin led melodies and Waits-esque gravelly vocals effortlessly evoke the spirit of 20s and 30s Paris and their repertoire covers not only the great Django Reinhardt but also the great American songbook.

 

Testimonial

"I just wanted to say a big thank you to you both for all your help with booking Viper Swing for our event last night!

The event itself went really well, and the band certainly played their part in that, setting the tone for a fun night. The guys were great, we had to make a few adjustments to the timings, and the room was really hot, but they were really professional about it all. The music was fab, and our guests loved it!"
