La Vie En Rose will be in Portishead on September 13.


A five-piece gypsy swing band will be performing in Portishead later this month.

Speakeasy Jazz Club will return from its summer hiatus by welcoming La Vie En Rose to perform at Clarence House.

Organiser Kate Sheridan said: "They blend the heartfelt wail of the blues, the sultry heat of the campfire, and the crazy swirl of the Bal-musette.

"The result is an exuberant, toe-tapping band with a swing and joie de vivre as fresh today as when Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli first conjured it in the back streets of Pigalle in 1930s Paris.

"So come and join us for a hot, steamy night of campfire gypsy jazz to titillate and excite your senses."

The concert will be held at the venue, in High Street, on September 13.

It will begin at 8.30pm, with doors opening an hour before.

Tickets, priced £12, can be reserved from Kate on 01275 848391 or email katespeakeasy@hotmail.co.uk
