About The Swinging Garçons

Jazz
London
Jazz band or duo, (sax, violin, guitar, vocals)playing popular selections from the jazz era. Ideal for your 'Great Gatsby' themed events!

The Swinging Garçons was formed in 2012 and features Steve Knight (The Fabulations, Kit Packham's One Jump Ahead, Tracie Young, Naomi Ayers) on sax, flute, guitar and vocals; Andy Metcalfe (Squeeze, Robin Hitchcock, The Egyptians) on guitar and vocals; Virtuosic violinist Jamie Metcalfe; renowned jazz drummer and steel-drum maestro Derek Gayle; rhythm guitar and vocals, Charlotte Tupman (not exactly a 'garcon'!); and bassist extraordinaire, Dave Carmichael (recently of Black Uhuru). The band was formed out of a mutual desire to play the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli (Gypsy Jazz), but has over time diversified and developed an accessible and entertaining repertoire of various jazz styles dating from the1930s onwards. The Swinging Garçons are available to book in a variety of line-ups from duos, trios, quartets...all the way up to sextet! We are a must for your 'Great Gatsby" themed event. Book the Swinging Garçons and party like it's 1939!
