Gypsy Swingers from £455Add to Your Favourites
The Gypsy Swingers are a fantastic Gypsy Jazz influenced acoustic band based in and around London available to hire for weddings, corporate events, parties, festivals and other celebrations.
Gypsy, Swing and More
The Gypsy Swingers derive their influence from the music of Django Reinhardt and the great Gypsy Jazz tradition. The band's repertoire encompasses many styles including swing, bossa nova, bolero and samba for dancing, ballads for relaxing and the lyrical French chansons for singing along to.
This band is very flexble in terms of their line-up. They are available to hire as a duo (2 acoustic guitars) through to a quintet (with female vocals, violin and double-bass), so whatever your space, volume restrictions or budget they can help.
Style & Influence
This acoustic quintet is one of many variations based on the original Quintette du Hot Club de France which featured Django Reinhardt and Stefan Grappelli. The Gypsy Swingers infuse Gypsy Jazz with their own experience of many styles of music including jazz, classical, rock and pop to bring a sound that is enjoyable for all. Established in 2007 they have combined their passion for the melodies and rhythms to present great music for everyone.

We hired the Gypsy Swingers 5 piece band to play during the meal and when evening guests were arriving at our wedding. So many of our guests have said how beautiful the music was and that it really set the tone for the evening. We could have listened to them for many more hours.
Dom & Sarah - 10 Jul 2017
Thank you so much for such an excellent performance on Saturday, we hope you enjoyed yourselves too. We had some really positive feedback and our guests loved your music.
I'm just sorry I didn't get a chance to introduce myself, but Dan says he spoke to you.
Claire Hammersley - Wedding - 15 Apr 2016
The Gypsy Swingers were excellent at our wedding.
We hired them as a four-piece to play as afternoon guests drank and chatted and evening guests arrived. They played beautifully and the audience really enjoyed it making for a wonderful atmosphere. We even had them play beyond the time we'd agreed after the band said they were just enjoying playing together! Andy was also very easy to deal with on the day and the week before when we were agreeing the plan for their set.
Tom Hillmann - Wedding - 2 Jul 2015
I just wanted to thank you and the band for doing such a wonderful job last Saturday. Lots of our guests have commented on how much they enjoyed the music and we certainly did too.
Jemma Clark - 8 Oct 2014
Wow! They were absolutely brilliant. Great musicians and great people. They really brought the party to life and were very accommodating when an overzealous barmaid started to boss them around. Lots of people have commented on the variety of genres and periods they interpreted in their own style. What great guys. We'll definitely use them again when the opportunity arises. They really do make a party swing.
Thanks so much.
Lee Gage - Birthday Party - 25 Mar 2014
I just wanted to say a (very belated!!) thank you to both you and to Andy and the rest of the band for everything. You were so helpful with the booking and the band were great! The music was perfect for the outdoor drinks reception and lots of our guests commented on how great the music was. It was the perfect type of music and the right thing for the occasion.
Please pass our thanks on to Andy and the others too.
Anna Hartwell - Wedding - 19 Aug 2013
Their last appearance here went down a storm. Great audience reaction. We’re delighted to have them back here so quickly. Great stuff.
Annita Chatim - Waiting Room, Palmers Green
The band provided superb entertainment during our recent Awards Night, they brought a real sense of occasion to the event. We will definitely be booking them again.
Damian Cummins - Federation of Small Businesses
Hi, What can I say, a great afternoon and no mistake. The music was, as I'd hoped, excellent and with a good crowd to enjoy and appreciate it. ...well done you guys, keep it up... all the best, Charlie.
