Gypsy Jazz Duo – Joe Perkins and Jamie Benzies

Joe Perkins and Jamie Benzies perform an exciting repertoire of Jazz Manouche arrangements for guitar and double bass. This electric duo demonstrate fantastic drama, storytelling and conversational melodies that assure a deep knowledge of, and clear love for, the music.

The duo’s exceptional reputation have led them to perform at some of the UK’s most prestigious events and venues including the Royal Albert Hall, The Wallace Collection, Royal Academy of Arts, Southbank Centre and The Vortex Jazz Club.

Their modern approach to arrangements and adaptations of Hot Jazz is both innovative and an homage to the masters such as Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.
