Private Events

Trio Manouche are regularly invited to play at beautiful private parties, weddings and corporate events across the UK and internationally. Their on-stage charisma, upbeat and universally appealing set list, impeccable presentation and ever-professional attitude have won them a place in the hearts of the country’s most discerning private clients. They are the go-to gypsy swing band for elite event planners including the Admirable Crichton, Fait Accompli, Lillingston Associates and many more.

The band are typically booked for either evening dance sets or for background music during a drinks reception or dinner: the built-in flexibility of their lineup and set list means they work beautifully in both contexts.
For their full-on powerful dance show, the trio team up with virtuoso guests including star vocalist Lucinda Belle (the Lucinda Belle Orchestra), clarinetist Giacomo Smith (The Kansas Smittys), trumpeter Pete Horsfall (the Basin Street Brawlers), drummer Pedro Segundo (Ronnie Scotts’ House Band) and many more to create the ‘big daddy’ of Trio Manouche – Manouche. Their dance set comprises back-to-back classics from the swing era performed in their own firebellied uptempo arrangements, guaranteed to fill the dance floor.

For their background set, the band perform a mixture of jaunty gypsy swing classics and beautiful swing & blues ballads, either as trio or in 4-piece or 5-piece formats.
