SWING '39 is here to enliven any occasion with a special style of swing music known as “hot club" or “gypsy” jazz. This style was established in the late 1930s when Gypsy guitarist D'jango Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grapelli formed a quintet to play in the legendary Hot Club of Paris. They created a special blend of music that fused American jazz and French cabaret with Gypsy fire. One of the things that makes this style unusual is that it uses the guitars, rather than drums, to produce the rhythm. This enables the ensemble to have an intimate quality while still being incredibly dynamic. It is this kind of sound that Ben, Ken, John and Jane are after and why they have followed the call of gypsy jazz for many years. They revel in playing the original compositions of D'jango, as well as popular tunes by composers of the swing era such as Cole Porter, Gershwin, and Ellington. The result is music that's a little Gypsy, a little French, a little American, but most importantly, a whole lot of fun!

Great band! We planned from overseas, and the communications were easy. Highly recommended for outdoor events, as the music style was perfect and talent was fantastic!

Phew! now that it's all over I can reflect on what was a truly superb day for me and my wife. Swing '39 was almost as crucial to the success of our day as the rings, the minister and the weather. I'm so glad we chose them to play - they set the joyful, festive tone we were hoping for. And not only was their music outstanding, but the players were amiable and receptive to the special requests we made of them. My talented sister in law sang a few tunes with them (without rehearsal) and they were happy to do it. I highly recommend these folks!
