About The Residents

GYPSY JAZZ, JAZZ STANDARDS, CLASSIC POP TUNES, THE RESIDENTS DO IT ALL!
The Residents's profile picture
Gypsy jazz band
London
Public liability insurance of £10 million

The Residents are a London based quartet who play authentic Gypsy Jazz as well as music ranging from Jazz standards and recognisable swing tunes, to modern pop classics. We have a great passion for the gypsy jazz tradition of the great Django Reinhardt, but this hasn't prevented them from incorporating tunes that everyone of all ages can recognise! The quartet are equally suited to bringing the life and soul to your party, or subtly providing background music. Our Klezmer, Balkans tunes and lively gypsy jazz never fails to bring the energy to the event! Our rich canon of jazz standards, bossa nova and swing music act as the perfect accompaniment to drinks receptions. While the re-working of familiar pop tunes work as a great way to see the night out! The Residents can be booked in different line ups to suit your event: •FULL QUARTET: Violin, 2 guitars, double bass. •VIOLIN TRIO: Violin, guitar, double bass OR Violin, two guitars. •VIOLIN DUO: Violin, Guitar. •GUITAR TRIO: Two guitars, double bass. •GUITAR DUO: Two guitars. We're a London based band who perform throughout the UK for events including festivals, corporate functions, garden parties, birthdays, anniversaries and weddings. All enquiries welcome!
