What is gypsy Jazz
Gipsy Jazz is a specific kind of music style that originated in the 1930s. The most famous name of this style is popularly known as gypsy jazz, since it has many influences of gypsy music.
The Belgian Django Reinhardt drew a lot of inspiration from the original music of the Roma and Sinti and is also considered the founder of Jazz Manouche Swing. The genre soon caught on in Belgium, after which it soon reached France, where it is known as Hot Club de France.
Gypsy jazz is known as a cheerful music style with an enormously unique sound. At the moment, it is Stochelo Rosenberg who represents gypsy jazz worldwide with his Rosenberg Trio. Besides all these well-known and big names, there are many musicians who have followed in their footsteps. That is why there is now the possibility to perform this special jazz style live at your home.

For a full Gypsy Jazz band, the foursome of The Roseland Quartet might be a very good addition to your party or wedding.
