Twistin' the Swing

Twistin’ the Swing is a lively acoustic gypsy jazz band influenced by the music of Django Reinhardt, 1930-40s swing and Romani songs.

The band consists of Asher Truppman Lattie on clarinet and saxophone, Phillip Beatson on gypsy guitar, Travis Hill on la pompe guitar and Djordje Nikolic on double bass. The rhythm, musicality and interplay between band members creates an atmosphere that is highly energetic and engaging. They alternate this vibrancy with slow melodic ballads and medium swing tunes, something to suit everyone.

Twistin’ the Swing have performed extensively for the past several years, at parties, weddings, swing dance events, theatres, corporate events, markets and festivals including Auckland Arts Festival, Auckland Jazz Festival and Music in Parks.
