Cardiff Swing - Gypsy Jazz Group
Enjoy an performance of great music with a band of four skilled players - two guitars and double bass, fronted by an unusual combination of clarinet, bass-clarinet and vocals.
Their music is feel-good and accessible, gypsy swing jazz and Latin, based on the style of Hot Club of France. Think café and cabaret, candles and wine! Strongly influenced by great artists Django Reinhardt, and Benny Goodman among others, Latin rhythms, cheeky quotes from their own diverse musical backgrounds and songs performed in several languages all combine to give them a unique, sophisticated and widely appealing sound.
Between them the musicians clock up years of professional experience at a high level in many different fields: rock and folk to pop and classical. Individually, they have worked with artists such as Terry Hall, Cerys Matthews, Shakin’ Stevens and Simon Rattle, and have made numerous recordings, live television appearances and radio broadcasts in a plethora of venues and circumstances all over the world. Together they've performed extensively at festivals, functions, exhibitions, parties, restaurants, schools (giving classes as well as performances), pubs and jazz clubs, town halls, temples and tents!
"Have no doubt about it - they are a class act." Allan Morris. The Tenby Observer
