LA VIE EN ROSE…Gypsy Jazz & Swing

See them on our Showtime stage at 1pm.  

The south-west’s favourite gypsy jazz and hot swing band has a well-earned reputation for its take on the ‘Hot Club’ style. Toe-tapping  rhythms and soaring melodies combine in a virtuoso performance of  gypsy  favourites,  jazz standards, soulful ballads and Latin swing, all played with the verve and joy that is the heart of this music. 

These Exeter based musicians have wide-ranging individual backgrounds in classical music, traditional jazz, 

rock, blues, country, ragtime and roots, all drawn together by the shared pleasure of playing gypsy jazz and 

hot swing.        

Performing  to acclaim at larger festivals such as Dart Music Festival, Upton Jazz, Bude Jazz, Jazz Jurassica, for events like ‘Exeter Jazz on the Quay’ and Velo Vintage.  At the huge Cosy Club in Bristol for their New Year’s Eve  festivities,  and for three years running at The Royal Albert Hall’s ‘Verdi Italian Kitchen’  for their prestigious  Valentine’s  Day event.  

They have built a reputation for their mix of ‘Hotclub’ favourites,  jazz standards, soulful ballads and Latin swing 

mixed with the occasional unexpected film theme or classical score!  Toe-tapping  rhythms and virtuoso melody 

 lines combine  in a performance with all the verve and joy that makes this music so irresistible. 

“We loved having you – absolutely brilliant performance!”  Jazz Jurassica  

 “A great performance. We hope to have you to play again soon!”  Tiverton Community Arts Theatre 

“…this is a rare treat. This lot are magnificent.”  Danny Gladstone, ‘The Glad’, London SE1.
