La Bouche Manouche Feat. Irene Serra
We are a vintage jazz band influenced by the chic and sophisticated era of the jazz age and beyond. Our repertoire is rooted in the sound of gypsy jazz, with swing tunes from Django Reinhardt, as well as traditional gypsy swing tunes, charlestons, French chansons, bal musette and classic jazz standards from the Great American Songbook.
We came together over a love of all things vintage and sophisticated! Irene is a self-proclaimed sassy girl that loves singing old jazz tunes, drinking G&T’s and dancing the night away in the swingiest jazz joints! Joined by some of the hottest players in London, La Bouche Manouche was formed one hazy evening in a smoky Jazz Club in London Town when we took to the stage with our brand of sultry and vibrant jazz and wowed the crowds.
With Irene Serra on vocals, Nathan Mansfield on soaring violin and trumpet, Andy Ruiz Palma and Sol Grimshaw on melodic, rhythmic and pumping guitars, all underpinned by the solid and tasteful bass of Amy Baldwin, we’re here to bring this timeless music right up close and personal.
