About

The Gypsy Jazz Project (GJP) is a Canberra-based quartet playing 1930s Parisian “hot club” jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt. Featuring Bruce Rose and Sverre Molland on guitars, Anthony Irving on double bass and Steve Rouch on clarinet and vocals, the GJP plays hot string swing jazz that will bring a smile to your dial and get your hands clapping while your feet tapping. The band plays regularly at jazz venues in Canberra and neighbouring regions, as well as festivals, private functions, weddings, vineyards and cocktail parties.
