The group’s style is gypsy jazz and they really capture the genre’s relaxed virtuosity. However their set offers a wide variety of music with something for everyone.

You are as likely to hear tracks by The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Remi himself, as you are by Django Reinhardt and other jazz standards.

The thing that really makes this group stand out from the crowd is their jaw-dropping skills. Their breath-taking talent brings freshness to old classics and they remain respectful of the originals, without being afraid to tinker a little.

The performance is suitable for adults and also older children aged ten and over.

The gig is now sold out but you can call for returns only on 01773 853260.
