Relive the heyday of jazz with Pearl Manouche! Delivering the swinging expressiveness of Klezmer and gypsy jazz, Pearl Manouche are a distinctive trio with an unrivalled style who perform standards from the 20s, 30s and 40s.
Lovers of gypsy swing will recognise Pearl Manouche's emulation of the distinctive styles of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in their inspired and driven style. Pearl Manouche are an eclectic and superbly talented trio comprising a lead violinist, who has played for most of her life in orchestras and ensembles throughout the UK, alongside two intuitive and distinctive guitarists, who authentically recreate the classic "jazz club" feel in their performance. Together, they deliver cool, mellow jazz to swing, bebop and Klezmer with silky baselines and alluring rhythms that provides ideal entertainment for any setting.
Each of the skilful musicians in Pearl Manouche has over 30 years of performance experience, having played at the Royal Albert Museum in London, the nostalgic Le QuecumBar and Verdi at the Royal Albert Hall. Their repertoire covers jazz standards from the first half of the 20th century, all played in a distinctive, improvisational style that is inspired by the grandfathers of jazz: Reinhardt and Grappelli.
Pearl Manouche are totally self-contained, with a PA suited for up to 300 people and ambient lighting projected behind the band to create an atmosphere for any mood. They're happy to work on new songs and provide a first dance plus one special request (at least a month's notice is required).
