Brooklyn's The Bailsmen play Gypsy Jazz and Vintage Swing. With over 200 events and concerts a year, the Bailsmen are New York's busiest jazz band. Mixing French bistro, New Orleans dance party, and New York sophistication, the Bailsmen have been inspired by Django Reinhardt, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Sidney Bechet since 2011.

In the last 7 years, the Bailsmen have expanded their repertoire to include original compositions and modern adaptations of classic French and American jazz and swing tunes, as well as innovative takes on Django Reinhardt's gypsy-inspired jazz. But no matter what they're playing, it's hot.

The Bailsmen have performed for The Rainbow Room, Conde Nast, New York Fashion Week, The Gramercy Park Hotel, Huffington Post, and many private concerts, weddings, summer rooftop parties, and events everywhere from the 5 boroughs, the Hudson Valley, the Hamptons, to all the way down the East Coast to New Orleans. This vibrant collection of young Brooklyn musicians is sure to charm the crowd anywhere and everywhere.

The Bailsmen were consummate professionals and the saviors of our wedding. When our first band cancelled unexpectedly, close to our date, The Bailsmen swooped in to save the day. And they absolutely killed it. From the vintage victrola horn used as megaphone to the thumping strums of the upright bass, the music sounded as good as it looked. We would recommend them highly to anyone considering a booking.

We were thrilled to have the Bailsmen play at our wedding. Many of our guests approached us days after the event and commented on, among other things, how great the band was. Some sat and listened for hours because it felt like a small, private concert. Throughout the planning process, Abraham was open to hearing our requests and giving professional opinions when we asked for them.
