  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$600 - $6000 per event
We hold a passport to anywhere--from a 1930s Paris bistro filled with artists and poets, an elegant gala in one of the finest hotel ballrooms in pre-war Manhattan, to the premiere of the latest Bogart and Bacall film in Hollywood. Armed with an impressive and vast repertoire of music, The Bastards of Belleville brings serious swing and romance to any event.

The quartet known as The Bastards Of Belleville started as weekly get together of four world class musicians wanting to drink strong coffee and tackle the music of Django Reinhardt. After awhile the band's repertoire grew with the addition of great songs from the 1920s and 30s. The Bastards eventually couldn't keep their sounds to the confinement of an Echo Park living room and now can be seen and heard in some of the hottest spots in southern California.

Led by guitarist Marcus Watkins (Nina Hagen, Johnny Hallyday) and chromatic harmonica virtuoso Bill Barrett (Hazmat Modine, Nels Cline) and joined by some of the finest musicians in Los Angeles, Belleville performs a mix of traditional jazz, cabaret, and gypsy swing. The band consists of two guitars, upright bass and harmonica. We also work with female vocalist, Francesca Vannucci frequently.
