Swing Gitan were fantastic at our wedding. They provided perfect background music as guests arrived, during our ceremony and entertained afterwards. The band created a great relaxing atmosphere that everyone enjoyed. Friendly and helpful communications with Elliot before and afterwards too which was also nice. Highly recommend.

Swing Gitan were amazing and would definitely recommend them. Very talented and nice chaps to boot! We got lots of compliments from the guests about good they were. Thanks guys




For our recent black tie function, we have Swing Gitan a go, and we're really happy that we did. They went above and beyond the call of duty and were terrific and totally professional throughout. Whether people wanted to sit and listen to the music being played, or get up and dance themselves, the band created an incredible mood. We'd love to book you guys again, having seen how you made our evening!

Absolutely fantastic music and great entertainment from start to finish. Truly talented musicians made sure our wedding guests kept their feet tapping and dancing into the evening. Perfect musical accompaniment to a fantastic day - all our guests commented how much they enjoyed Swing Gitan’s music and I would thoroughly recommend if planning for something a little different for your big day! Keep it swinging :-) Thanks chaps… Briilliant!

Booking swing gitan was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! the guys played during the drinks reception and I dare say it was one of the highlights of the day. Elliot was very professional throughout the booking process, which was quick and simple I've been a Django and manuche jazz music fan for a long time and seen some excellent players in Paris and Berlin and these guys were some of the best. HIGHLY recommended!!!

"Swing Gitan 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 - Management team at the Pelican club Nottingham"
