Since its formation in 1995, Ultraswing has been recognised as one of the UK’s most firmly established, well-respected and experienced Gypsy Swing Bands. In addition to entertaining and delighting audiences at wedding celebrations, private parties and the like, Ultraswing has performed regularly in major theatres, concert halls, arts centres and jazz clubs throughout the UK, and has appeared at several international jazz festivals.

“Exotic gypsy mystery and magic meets sophisticated Parisian chic as infectious ‘Hot Club’ rhythms set the pulses racing…”

The Ultraswing sound is driving, vibrant and exciting, presenting Parisian ‘Hot Club’ Swing Jazz favourites played as originally intended – with passion, brio and energy. Although the ensemble’s stylistic and musical provenance consists of several diverse influences, embracing Gypsy, Latin, Swing and traditional Eastern European genres, Ultraswing is nonetheless very much a product of the here and now. Those expecting a virtual carbon copy of the original Hot Club de France Quintet will most certainly not be disappointed, but rather will be in for a pleasant surprise.

Flexible as well as versatile in their approach to making music, Ultraswing offer a bespoke line-up for each occasion, from an accordion/guitar duo up to the full quartet, and the band can readily tailor their performance to suit the size and style of each event, be it a wedding celebration, birthday party or other social gathering. They travel equipped with a high-quality PA system producing an excellent sound in venues of any size.

Sit back, relax and allow the talented and dedicated musicians of Ultraswing to evoke the romance and exotic excitement of Parisian nightlife at your celebration. With sounds that immediately recreate that electric ambience, there’s no better way to give your event that really special feel.

  1. Aimee’s Wedding

    Ultraswing played at our wedding and evoked a foot-tapping lively atmosphere with their unique sound of string music, which inspired our guests to fill the dance floor for jazz enhanced swing!

  2. Debbie’s Party

    Thank you for creating such a wonderful ambience with the music. I absolutely loved it, and lots of people commented on how great the live band were.

  3. Claire’s Wedding

    I’d strongly recommend the talented players of Ultraswing to play at any private event, their ‘gypsy king meets European style’ is a combination that blends well either as background music or one to fill the dance floor. Thanks to Ultraswing our wedding evening was filled with great music, dancing and a buzzing atmosphere!
