Great Gatsby Party Band
A very popular event theme over the last few years has been the Great Gatsby theme. It is no wonder why as guests love to dress up in that 1920’s style by donning sparkly flapper dresses, spats, handle bar mustaches, zoot suits, straw fedora hats and even 20’s swimwear! Wearing those authentic costumes along with 1920’s period music do make for a fun evening of dancing and a perfect Gatsby party! Many of these parties even display vintage 1920’s-30’s cars, have a speakeasy type bar, and show old 1920's silent movies. By filling the event space with as much Art Deco pieces as they can get will transform it into a space reminiscent of a Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers movie!
The Texas Gypsies have performed their fun high energy 1920’s show for many of these popular vintage parties. The various theme names of these events the band has performed at are- Great Gatsby Party, The 1920’s, Roaring 20’s party, Speakeasy,Prohibition, Boardwalk Empire and up to the 1940’s WWII theme combing 20's and 40's Big Band crooner music. They have traveled all over the US and even as far away as Dubai in UE to play for these events.
The Perfect Gatsby Party Band
This band is the perfect fit for a Gatsby party as they will play many of the popular songs of the 20’s including the Charleston, Ain’t She Sweet, Whispering, 5ft 2, and many more. For the most authentic 1920’s jazz swing sound, the band can use their horn section and perform from a 6pc band up to a 14pc Big Band with song arrangements written specifically to sound like they did in the roaring twenties! They will dress in vintage era costume and will play period specific instruments. The clarinet, sax, cornet, ukulele, upright bass, trombone, drum, violin, piano and guitar are common in 1920's jazz along with other instruments that can be add in. Texas Gypsies will help make your Gatsby party both look and sound exactly like that era!
We can even provide professional swing dancers for your events that are able to show guests quickly how to do basic swing dance steps. The swing dancers are also able to teach guests specific 1920’s popular dances like The Charleston, Fox Trot, Lindy, Peabody, etc. The dancers will also be able to dance during the performance throughout the evening which guests love to watch.
Also of interest is that The Texas Gypsies are versatile enough to play other styles of music for your Gatsby party theme if you do not want the 1920’s style all evening. They can play popular Classic Rock and Pop hits, also Dance, Motown, and Disco songs can be performed with our female singer added. (See video under see/hear tab)
