La Vie En Rose

La Vie En Rose

Gypsy Jazz
Come and see us at:

The Guildhall


The heartfelt wail of the blues; the sultry heat of the campfire; the crazy swirl of the bal musette, all fused together ?with virtuosity and passion in the melting pot of 1930’s Paris: the result was gypsy jazz. Now ‘LA VIE EN ROSE’ play this exuberant, toe-tapping music with a swing and joie-de-vivre as fresh today as when Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli first conjured it from the back streets of Pigalle.

‘ L A  V I E  E N  R O S E ‘ . . . five musicians with wide-ranging individual backgrounds in classical music, traditional jazz, rock, blues, country, ragtime and roots, pulled together by the shared pleasure of gypsy jazz and hot swing.
