Eastern European Gypsy Folk * Manouche Jazz * Swing * Italian Folk *

Manière des Bohémiens play energetic and improvised Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli influenced Gypsy Jazz and Eastern European swing. They are the most debauched, ecstatic and downright amazing live band you will have seen for a long while.

Gypsy jazz played with the jaunty abandon of a misspent youth and a broken heart arranged by six virtuoso musicians who travel around playing the violin, guitar, sax and double bass whilst dipping in and out of Parisian alleyways and absorbing pieces of the colourful lives they meet along the way. 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.

Formed through a mutual love of gathering round warm festival bonfires and improvising, Maniére des Bohémiens spent many hours working together on the distinctive swing sound and many more on learning the melodies and developing them through improvisation.

Manière des Bohémiens’ current line up:

Rob Rosa – Violin
Roger Rosa & Rob Coates – Guitars
Peter Beardsworth – Sax
Matt Marks – Accordion
Mark Houlgate/Catherine Jones – Bass

Settembre is a Classic Italian Acoustic Duo formed in 2015 by singer Angela Cicchetti and guitarist Ivan Imperiali, evoking the sweet atmospheres of Mina, Baden Powell, Elis Regina, Tenco and Bruno Martino.
