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!

We hired Swing '39 for our New Year's Eve party and they made the event! Fun, upbeat, dance-able and unique. Some of the guests asked us to throw the exact same party next year and they wanted to reserve their table immediately! Other guests asked us where we found the band and said they were going to become "roadies". This band did a fantastic job! I would definitely work with them again. Thank you Swing '39 for making our New Year's so memorable! Happy 2018!

Swing '39 was so lovely to work with and absolutely nailed our vision for our ceremony and cocktail hour music at our wedding. We were planning remotely and they were very easy to work with and blew us and our guests away with their beautiful performance. They played beautiful French swing, Hall and Oates and classics, so perfect for our wedding. We highly recommend them!!
