The Gershwin Gang is a 1920s Gatsby swing jazz band with a large repertoire of songs that everybody knows. We perform every week at receptions, dinners, dances, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and corporate events e.g. exhibitions, product launches, Christmas parties.
Although most of our performances around East Sussex are for happy occasions, please don’t feel embarrassed to enquire about the band to play at a funeral; we’ve done plenty of these as well!
Subscribing to the principle that the old songs really are the best, our jazz and swing band specialises in the well known jazz/swing songs from the 1920s and 1930s written by the Gershwin brothers, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin and made popular by Fred Astaire, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra.
We also play more modern songs with a jazzy twist.
All enquiries are handled in person by our band leader, Selwyn. (You won’t be dealing with an agent – which means you save money!) So you get availability and prices straight away.
You don’t need to pay a deposit to book the band; just tell us you want to book and then it’s done!
We regularly perform at venues all over East Sussex including Hotel du Vin in Brighton, Laughton Barns near Lewes and Buxted Park, Uckfield. But we also play in village halls, company offices and in private homes and marquees in the garden.
You should be able to hear our music while reading this, but if not, ask for some Mp3s and we will email them to you immediately.
Our line-up ranges from solo to quintet but its most popular format is a Manhattan-style trio comprising piano/vocals, double bass and drums. Whatever the format, our music will brighten any event while ensuring that it is not so loud as to spoil your guests’ enjoyment and drown conversation!
If you are booking the band to play for your wedding in the evening, our pianist can come earlier in the afternoon for the ceremony and drinks reception.
We can also provide a disco to compliment the live jazz and swing band at the end of the evening.
We have plenty of available dates this year (2019) and are happy to take bookings at short notice. But next year’s diary is also filling up so please contact us now to secure the band for 2020.
Having a ‘Gin and Jazz’ or ‘Peaky Blinders’ themed evening? We’re the perfect band for you.
Christmas party? We are already taking December bookings for our ‘live Gatsby band and disco’ package.
Contact our band leader Selwyn now for friendly advice, free music samples, competitive prices and availability. You can enquire about booking East Sussex’s most prestigious Gatsby swing jazz band by ringing us any day of the week between 9am and 9pm, including week ends. Or just email/text us and we will try to get back to you in 10 minutes.
