The Gershwin Gang is an East Sussex 1920s Gatsby swing jazz band with a large repertoire of jazz favourites. The band is ideal for receptions, dinners, dances, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and corporate events e.g. exhibitions, product launches, Christmas parties.
Although most of our performances 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 (you won’t be dealing with an agent!) So you get availability and prices straight away.
We regularly perform at venues all around 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, just click on the ‘Samples’ link at the top of the page. And if you still can’t hear the music, just ring or email us and we will immediately send you some mp3s by email.
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.
Having a ‘Gin and Jazz’ or ‘Peaky Blinders’ themed evening? We’re the perfect band for you.
Contact our band leader for friendly advice, prices and availability.
