Swing 48 - Gypsy Jazz Duo/Trio

Swing 48 are a gypsy jazz group based in South East England taking influence from both the European gypsy guitar style of Django Reinhardt, and the dramatic emotion of South American music. They set a classy, romantic, or even frantic tone to any occasion. This can be adapted to fit parties, gallery exhibitions, restaurants, as well weddings and concerts.

If you require a bigger band experience Swing 48 can also perform as a full quintet of two guitars, bass and violin, accompanied with jazz vocalist.

The singer is granddaughter to Dame Cleo Laine and the late Sir John Dankworth as well as niece to Jacqui Dankworth and daughter to Alec Dankworth. She has performed live at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, The Barbican Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Centre, (NYC), Boston Symphony Hall, The National Center for Performing Arts, (Beijing), The Elgar Room, Kings Place and has been featured on BBC Radio and BBC Television including The Paul O'Grady Show, BBC Radio 2, The One Show, BBC One ,The Choir, BBC Radio 3, Ronnie Scotts' Radio Show, JAZZ FM and Jamie Cullum's Radio Show.

Swing 48 - Gypsy Jazz Duo/Trio Feedback

Excellent experience, the band were brilliant, we would love to have them at an event again!!

Paul Van Carter, Letchworth Garden City, Party (November 2022)

…the guitar duo were superb. I engaged them to play at a family party in August 2014; not only were they both charming, but their musical ability and range surpassed all expectations and wowed all the guests. They were an integral part of a very special party, for which I am extremely grateful. All the best for the future!
