“One of our firm favourites!!!!!”

booked Swing From Nottingham for their Hotel / Restaurant Event on 16th February 2018

Swing From Nottingham have been playing at our venue for several years now. Whether they are in a duo, trio or quartet the performance always makes for a great night. Their ‘gypsy jazz’ style is unique in Nottingham and always brings in a big crowd. Each member of the band are incredibly talented on stage and a pleasure to host both during and outside of the set performances. At the Pelican club, swing gitan have become one of the firm favourites for staff and customers alike.

“The band made the occasion truly memorable.”

We booked Swing Gitan for my 40th birthday party at home and fully enjoyed every minute. The band made the occasion truly memorable and contributed to a fantastic atmosphere. The music appealed to all generations which meant we were all up dancing and had a great time. When booking, they were really helpful with quick replies and answering any questions I had regarding the event. They were incredibly flexible, approachable and friendly. We found the band to be highly professional both before and throughout the party. We really look forward to seeing them perform again and hope that we'll have the occasion to book them for a second time! Thank you Swing Gitan for making my party so amazing!

“They are incredible musicians.”

We booked Swing Gitan for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with their performance. We found them online, then went to see them perform in Nottingham - we can honestly say their website does not do them justice; they are incredible musicians. We knew they would be perfect for our big day. Elliott was really friendly and easy to deal with, and we felt he understood exactly the tone we wanted to set - summer sun/cocktails/chilled vibe for our drinks reception and something more upbeat for later in the evening. They certainly didn't disappoint on the actual day, and many of our wedding guests told us how much they loved the band. We would be happy to recommend them to anyone. Claire&Dom

“You were really great and everyone loved your music!”

booked Swing From Nottingham for their event on 10th July 2015

“You were really great and everyone loved your music! For late night lindy we wanted a band to play a variety of tempos ranging between 130 and 180 bpm with the majority of the set staying around the 130-160 mark. We also wanted the odd one or two songs to be played at the higher end of the tempo spectrum, somewhere between 180 and 230 bpm. Ideally we didn’t want each performance to exceed the 4 minute duration because most of our crew are still building up their stamina. Swing Gitan met all our requirements and made an enormous contribution to a fantastic night. We can’t wait to get them back again.”

“'Swing Gitan UK joined the Nottingham Jazz Orchestra on the ...”

booked Swing From Nottingham for their event on 14th December 2014

'Swing Gitan UK joined the Nottingham Jazz Orchestra on the bill of the Christmas Jazz Fest last weekend. Having seen Swing Gitan a number of times, I have always been massively impressed with the musical and technical ability of all members of the band. Their music would sound at home on the streets or riverbank walkways of Paris, but we were lucky enough for them to join us for a unique lineup of bands. Within just a few bars of their first number, (insert what you played first here, I can't remember, sorry lol), it is clear to all that Elliott Lewis and Wayne Jefferies, who take the positions as guitarists within the band, are masters of their instruments and faithfully re-create the music of Django Reinhardt, but adding their own style to numbers such as Minor Swing, Blue Bossa, and Undecided. Joined by bassist Rob Coates and James Tolhurst completing the lineup, their enthusiasm is infectious and the music always driving. If you ever get the chance to catch these guys doing a set, you will not be disappointed!'

“They suited the mood perfectly.”

We couldn't have asked for more. We hired Swing Gitan for a black tie function last night, and they acted professionally and autonomously throughout the evening. They suited the mood perfectly, with people up and dancing, and plenty sitting around just enjoying listening to them jam. Again; thank you so much, you guys completed the evening. Would love to have you again.
