The New Orleans Swinging Gypsies embody the spirit of gypsy jazz, traditional jazz and swing evolving into a form of punk rock jazz
This high energy group is influenced by jazz legends Django Reinhardt, Duke Ellington and Jelly Roll Morton to name a few; music genre's include jazz from the 1920's-1950's. Tap dancing provides percussion for the band and vintage jazz movement (charleston, lindy, swing) provide a visual of improvisational wizardry linking live jazz music to jazz dancing. You can feel this band's vibrational force seeping through the streets of New Orleans French Quarter and Frenchmen St., encompassing a rich rhythm of unique sounds that swing with a passionate flare. You'll often find swing dancers cutting a rug to this delightful band, merging music and dance as one!
