This stylish Perth Gypsy Jazz band are the latest wonder,
recently forming and quickly establishing a high reputation among the Perth music industry.
The Major Swing Project explores a modern variant of the 1930s Django Reinhardt-inspired sound, with the music being heavily influenced by Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, as well as the traditional jazz and music of Edith Piaf and more French gypsy favourites. Essentially the music becomes sculpture.
The group consists of a varied ensemble including vocals, guitar, accordion and violin and not to mention an element of live tap dancing. All members of the group have extensive past experience and high report amongst the music network in and outside of Australia.
