Manière des Bohémiens play improvised Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli influenced Gypsy Jazz and Eastern European swing. They are the most debauched, ecstatic and downright amazing live band you will have seen for a long while. Gypsy jazz played with the jaunty abandon of a misspent youth and a broken heart arranged for 5 virtuoso musicians who travel around playing the violin, guitar, accordion and double bass whilst dipping in and out of Parisian alleyways and absorbing pieces of the colourful lives they meet along the way. They have been entertaining the folks of Nottingham

and far beyond for many years with their infectious blend of improvised, manouche jazz and rough-edged, virtuosic eastern-european gypsy-folk music.

Formed through a mutual love of gathering round warm festival bonfires and improvising, Maniére des Bohémiens spent many hours working together on the distinctive swing sound and many more on learning the melodies and developing them through improvisation.

Manière des Bohémiens' current line-up of

Rob Rosa - Violin,

Matt Marks - Accordion

Mark Houlgate - Bass
