“Their sound – a blend of eminently danceable gypsy, jazz and swing genres – really made our event come to life”
Devin Karambelas, National Programming Manager, WGBH
Manouche Urbain is a Boston based acoustic jazz band influenced by the music of gypsy swing legends, Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli. This "hot" quartet is composed of two guitars, a violin and an upright bass with timely vocals and percussion. They perform throughout New England and give every special event the ambiance of a romantic Parisian café or a swinging speakeasy.
From spicy renditions of beloved jazz standards, to gypsy jazz hits, to Django originals, Manouche Urbain's music transports the listener to a smoky hot club in the 1940s. Our house mix is blended with a few choice Latin jazz classics - and served up with a swinging gypsy jazz vibe!
Manouche Urbain’s sweet swing invigorates guests at weddings, cocktail hours, private functions, and evening soirées. It is also perfect for setting the right mood in restaurants and cafés. Whatever the occasion… Manouche Urbain is the perfect accompaniment!
