Duke Of George presents
Doors 6pm, Band at 7pm
This stylish Perth Gypsy Jazz band are the latest wonder, recently forming and quickly establishing a high reputation amongst the Perth and WA music scene.
The Major Swing Project explores a modern variant of the 1930s Manouche inspired gypsy sound, with the music being heavily influenced by Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, as well as the traditional jazz and folk music of Edith Piaf with a European gypsy favour. Essentially the music becomes sculpture.
The group consists of a varied ensemble of accomplished musicians in their own right including the line up of vocals (sung in 7 different languages), gypsy guitar, piano accordion and saxophone with additions of drums, trumpet and ukulele all within the ensemble.
