A hot, hot, hot gypsy swing quintet featuring superlative girl vocals. Great to listen to, smooth to dance to! The Lounge Lizards are also available for smaller, more intimate venues in duo or trio format.

Number of Reviews and Counting... 1!

The Lounge Lizards play volcanic, swinging gypsy jazz. Whilst portraying the influence of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, the unique addition of Rosie's soaring, flaming vocals is guaranteed to turn the thermostat up a notch. 

Mel (swing violin) utilises her impeccable classical pedigree to lend virtuosity to the flair of her improvisation. Julian (rhythm guitar), a veteran of the gypsy jazz scene for over three decades, and talented composer and multi-instrumentalist Howard (double bass) provide the driving force that is the rhythm section. 

The Lounge Lizards are also available for smaller, more intimate venues in duo or trio format.

I heard The Lounge Lizards and knew straight away I wanted them to play at our wedding. They were flexible when our set times changed and had an amazing repertoire to choose from. They were exceptional on the day and many of our guests commented on how fantastic they were. Would highly recommend!
