ELECTRO MANOUCHE

ELECTRO SWING WITH DJ, SINGERS & LIVE BAND

Electro Manouche is the latest collaboration between two of the UK’s key figures of the electric swing scene, bringing together the swinging sounds of the golden age of jazz and the latest ground breaking electro beats from the world of dance.

Gypsy Swing band ‘Trio Manouche’, led by front man Simon Harris, have been regulars on the festival and club scene for many years, including performances at Glastonbury, Bestival, Secret Garden Party and the award winning White Mink Black Cotton Electro swing club nights founded by the godfather of Electro Swing Nick Hollywood.

An introduction to the acclaimed Electro Swing DJ and producer, Odjbox (No. 1 in Hype Machine and Band Camp Charts) has resulted in a fresh sound that is pushing the boundaries of this exciting and highly entertaining sub-genre of dance music, and already Electro Manouche are traveling throughout the UK and Europe spreading their vibes!

Drawing on the pairs distinct backgrounds and skill sets, Simon through his working relationships with many of the top jazz musicians in the UK and beats it is no wonder that comparisons with established acts like Caravan Palace {EMI} are already being drawn.

Collectively the band have worked with Ray Charles, Flux Pavilion, KT Tunstall, Van Morrison, US3, Prince, Omar and John Martyn to name but a few.

“These guys are even giving Caravan Palace a run for their money!” – Bestival

“A headline band who threatened to rival the mighty Correspondents for sheer roof-raising intensity.”
Jake Evans, Last Days Of Decadence
