About the Event
Flapper Swing is an acoustic jazz manouche band, following in the footsteps of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Flapper Swing, consisting of rhythm guitar, solo guitar, double bass, soprano saxophone and vocals, takes the stage in quintet form. The group, which includes D. Reinhardt compositions and 1920-30s jazz standards in its repertoires, gives its audience the unique atmosphere of that period.
Flapper Swing is a quintet following footsteps of famous french jazz artists Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli and New Orleans's expatriot Sidney Bechet. These five musicians were brought together by their passion for taunting acoustic sounds of gypsy swing. Flapper Swing's music is a sweet blend of manouche guitars, wild soprano saxophone, sensitive silklike vocal, supported by deep woody hum of double bass.
