SJ Hot Swing G were born at the beginning of 2013 in London from an idea of the doublebass player Fabio who had a passion for modern manuche – gypsy – Jazz.
Luckily he met Andrea and Alexis and they start re-arranging songs, new and old, (no matter which genre they came from) bringing them back to life with a very personal interpretation in a swing and gypsy jazz style. They also started to write their own tunes enjoying themselves a lot, jelling together musically and personally and a new band was born!!
After recording a short demo, they travelled around various Italian cities, playing at international festivals, such as “Umbria Jazz Festival” in Perugia, “Pistoia Blues” and “Lucca Summer Festival”. They also did a short tour in Berlin where they achieved considerable success.
They have played all over the UK and Europe and are also very active in the Oxford and Cambridge scene they performed at the classy CLUB 12/a in Cambridge and Joe's Bar and Grill in Oxford along with regular visits to London venues like The Jamboree, Wiltons, The green note amongst others.
With that background, in the Spring of 2014 they produced their first EP called “Eclipsy ” which contains 3 original numbers and 2 famous tunes rearranged in the gypsy jazz style ; “Eclipsy” sold more than 1000 copies on its first release.
Sarah-Jane joined them as singer in 2014 and Tim as guitar in 2017.
Also available with "Flapper" style dancers to provide a fantastic spectular show.
