CELEBS, FESTIVALS & REVIEWS
“I’m now on my second playing. Ah, Dark Eyes, love that tune! I was relieved the other night that there were no drums, your band swings beautifully without all that banging and clashing.”
“Manouche are a class act. Great soulful swing delivered with wry humour.”
SUZY KLEIN, BBC RADIO 3
"Very hot and very swing"
“Love this band, amazing musicianship and great vibe”
“Everything was just perfect”
"Irresistible and world-class"
“Wonderful and definitely one of the highlights of the festival”
GREEN FUTURES, GLASTONBURY
“We time-travelled back to pre-war Paris when Manouche hit the Old Crown on Highgate Hill. Ducato Pietrowsky and Simon Harris swapped lead and rhythm guitar seamlessly as they and bassist Nick Pini caressed Django Reinhardt classics (Minor Swing), period standards (After You’ve Gone) and witty originals.”
JACK MASSARIK, EVENING STANDARD
“The guys were great and brought warmth and sunshine to a cold drizzly evening. I love what they do. Thank you so much, we loved having the band.”
"We would have happily travelled anywhere to be a part of this irresistible sound. The Frank Sinatra of Gypsy Swing, Simon Harris, has an effortless warmth to his vocals, while Ducato Pietrowski brings the authentic sound of gypsy music on guitar. The warmth and skill of this band instantly bring smiles to the crowd."
“They were awesome, and people loved them!”
THE THAMES FESTIVAL
PRIVATE & CORPORATE EVENTS

LIBBY SILVER, BRIDE
“We were all totally blown away by Simon and the band. They were absolutely marvellous. There are no words good enough to describe truly how much we loved them. Three encores! I think they didn’t want to stop! I wish we had the whole event on video so we can relive it again. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about it the next day and am sure they will be reliving it all in their minds (as we are) over and over again. I do also wish you could have seen the laughter and dancing. My parents said they will never forget the best party of their lives. Happy days!”
ANGELA LOCKE, PRIVATE PARTY
“The evening was a huge success and Manouche were amazing. They are all very, very talented musicians and great guys.
They were so friendly too which always helps!”
