Manière des Bohémiens play improvised Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli influenced Gypsy Jazz and Eastern European swing. They have been entertaining the folks of Nottingham and far beyond for many years with their infectious blend of improvised, manouche jazz and rough-edged, virtuosic eastern-european gypsy-folk music. They get people on their feet and have been attracting many Lindy Hop dancers who turn up, do their thing and get the dance floor moving!
Gypsy jazz played with the jaunty abandon of a misspent youth and a broken heart arranged for 5 virtuoso musicians playing violin, guitar, sax and double bass.
They have made many festival appearances including Boomtown, Port Eliot Literary and Elderflower. They’ve also appeared at Bestival, Camp Bestival, Summer Sundae, Matt & Phreds, Kendal Calling, Limetree, Headstock, Larmer Tree, Towersey Folk and Fire in the Mountain to name a few. They’ve played support slots for Jools Holland, Polar Bear and Quantic.
