Maniere des Bohemiens

Returning to Southwell by popular demand, Maniere des Bohemiens play gypsy jazz played with the jaunty abandon of a misspent youth and a broken heart arranged for 5 young virtuoso musicians who travel around playing the violin, guitar, sax and double bass whilst dipping in and out of Parisian alleyways and absorbing pieces of the colourful lives they meet along the way. They have been entertaining the folks of Nottingham and far beyond for many years with their infectious blend of improvised, manouche jazz and rough-edged, virtuosic eastern-european gypsy-folk music.

Manière des Bohémiens have been causing quite a stir in the city over the past few months, with their unique gypsy-jazz inspired sounds rattling the walls regularly at Nottingham Contemporary, Fade, and a whole host of other venues. Their gigs have been described as ‘the perfect place to rave with your grandad’, they’re guaranteed to get your feet moving, and they’re usually making it all up as they go.

They are playing on Friday.
