The French Connection is a swinging hot jazz and gypsy jazz band. Comprised of seasoned professionals well versed in the styles of jazz manouche and traditional jazz, chansons françaises, hot jazz, swing and beyond, the band will fill any room with the exciting and romantic sounds of an era. All the members have a wealth of experience, internationally and locally, and have played in all different environments. From small intimate listening rooms, to wedding & cocktail events, and large jazz festival stages we can create a special musical experience appropriate for any space or event. We would love to work with you and bring your musical vision to life.
We also work with some of the best singers in NYC, accordionists, drummers and more. Feel free to express any interests or requests in regards to instrumentation, personnel, and more. We are happy to accommodate and fulfill any requests within our range.
