Blue Note Express, a youthful gypsy jazz and swing band, provides the ideal soundtrack for a special event.
Their music spans the eras of the 1920s to the '50s, encompassing Parisian Waltzes, hot swing, and influences of Latin and bossa nova, all infused with the unmistakable style of gypsy jazz guitar virtuoso Django Reinhardt.
With its diverse range of styles, their music is perfectly suited for a wide variety of settings, including weddings, private parties, garden parties, festivals, vintage-themed events, swing dance affairs, afternoon teas, Sunday lunches, late-night bars, cafés, hotels, casinos, and more.
The full quintet consists of melodic accordion/piano, two-spirited guitars, hot double bass, and sultry vintage-style female vocals. Whether focusing on a specific genre or showcasing their versatility, Blue Note Express can tailor their sets to create the perfect ambience for your occasion.

Please do pass on our thanks, the feedback was very impressive and the entertainers did an excellent job. The guests were very happy.
Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe. He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with. He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day. He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with. All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.
The event was a huge success and we have had some great feedback. It was certainly one of the most popular areas of the night!
It was a great night and we have had fantastic feedback on all the acts that you provided.
The acts went down really, people seem to enjoy them and each one appealed to a different group so a nice mix for all staff.
