MEMBER SINCE 2014
BOOKED {{daysSinceLastBookingText()}}

  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$900 - $5000 per event
The San Diego based Gypsy Swing Cats perform an energetic, innovated blend of Swing, Jazz and Blues. Their music merges Gypsy melodies and rhythms, with the influences of American Jazz reminiscent of Paris in the 1930's: cool, charming and classy. The music of the Gypsy Swing Cats is thoroughly modern infused with the wild, mysteriously free and exciting Gypsy flavors.

Gypsy Jazz, also known as Gypsy Swing, is a musical expression often said to have been started by guitarist Jean "Django" Reinhardt. He was foremost amongst a group of Gypsy guitarists working in and around Paris in the 1930's. The music combined the exciting sound of American Jazz that transformed the old into the new. The guitarists supercharged the music further by adding Swing to the fire and melancholia of the unique Gypsy sound. The tantalizing melodies of the Gypsy Swing Cats bring the audience a unique and new experience. Their highly rhythmic sound will electrify your event, be it a small intimate gathering, a wedding or a large corporate reception, with a new exciting energy.





Testimonials


So I went to the Gator by the Bay on Sunday...the wonderful Taryn Donath was awesome on the Bourbon Street Stage, as was Whitney Shay - I had a great time at both shows. My real treat, though, as a guitar player, was seeing Steve Nichols and the Gypsy Swing Cats on the Fountain Stage rippin' through some great guitar jazz pieces like you never saw. What a fantastic time. Thanks to my friends Taryn, Whitney, and Steve (and their bands) for such great music!!!

The samples of Opus contain great unique compositions and arrangements; I really appreciate the various techniques you explore with your music and as an ensemble. In "Bossa Dorado," I really enjoyed the playing; outstanding feel, very nice melody, interesting arrangement, great ensemble sound, and the music is enjoyable and creative.
Sincerely,

"Dear Gypsy Swing Cats: We have seen you play at six different dates and have enjoyed your music every time. Guy's playing is astonishing. His ability to pick and strum make his guitar sing and Steve is just as accomplished in his play. The bass brings it all together, we like Evona but have also enjoyed Robin and his wonderful riffs. Keep up the wonderful job and we look forward to your CD this spring. "

"Doug wrote: "Steven - it was great meeting you and Guy (I had met Evona previously, and it was great seeing her perform again, too!) at the Friendly Grounds Coffee House yesterday evening, and hearing your fantastic gypsy swing interpretations of many familiar songs and some I hadn't heard before. We'll probably stop in there again on one other Tuesday this month. To all San Diegans who read Steven's postings - set aside a Tuesday evening to come to this coffee house and hear these guys play. You will love their energy, virtuosity, and passion for this special music! And you'll find yourself tapping your foot and really getting into the swing of things."
