Verified profile

We are a vintage jazz band influenced by the chic and sophisticated era of the jazz age and beyond. Our repertoire is rooted in the sound of gypsy jazz, with swing tunes from Django Reinhardt, as well as traditional gypsy swing tunes, charlestons, French chansons, bal musette and classic jazz standards from the Great American Songbook. We're based in London and perform throughout the UK for events including festivals, corporate functions, garden parties, birthdays, anniversaries and weddings. We usually perform as a quintet with our core sound based on the original Quintette du Hot Club de France. Please get in touch for duo, trio, quartet line ups

I would have no reservations about recommending La Bouche Manouche. They arrived promptly and set up with minimal requirements from us. They played three sets of wonderful music, despite the cold and windy weather. Everyone enjoyed the music and commented how good they were. Many thanks for making it a wonderful evening.

On behalf of myself and the bride and groom, I wanted to thank the band for providing such fantastic music during the dinner service and for being so flexible with timings. The whole band were a pleasure to work with, extremely polite, helpful and not to mention very talented! It was wonderful to see people up and dancing before the dinner started and the style of music was completely in keeping with the Wedding theme. It would be a pleasure to work with you again and I wish you all the best for the remainder of the season.
