Bonjour Swing is a flamboyant family group, playing largely original music based on GYPSY JAZZ. This exciting, romantic French style originated in 1940s’ Paris with the legendary musicians Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. It incorporates Gypsy, French and Jazz styles of music. Bonjour Swing’s performance will include some great standards of the repertoire alongside a selection of stunning original songs.

Bonjour Swing are: Marion Arts & Robbie Lavën (ex Red Hot Peppers) and their son Oscar Lavën. The family will be joined by a feature double bass player.

Robbie Lavën is a dazzling guitarist, wonderfully fluent in the style, who will astonish with his virtuosic playing and authentic sound.
Oscar Lavën is an extremely versatile young musician, stunning on saxes, trumpet and clarinet. He adds a certain cool ‘je ne sais quoi,’ style and panache.
The very talented Marion Arts is a great guitarist, vocalist, and performer. She composes most of the group’s original repertoire and sings fluently in French as well as English.

Bonjour Swing is a family feast for fans of guitar, great female vocals, jazz sax, French and original music, and will delight those with a taste for the romance and passion of Paris.
