Gypsy Jazz! Chanson! French Pop!
Manouche Bag is an intimate window into the heart of France. Led by singer/guitarist Mattias Gustafsson, Manouche Bag plays the music of such legends as Django Reinhardt, Serge Gainsbourg, and Jo Privat. They have been known to perform anything from Zaz to tangos, traditional french love songs to frenzied originals.
The instrumentation of saxophone, melodica, acoustic bass, lead guitar, rhythm guitar, and vocalist allow maximum versatility to cater to any setting. Manouche Bag performs at wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, corporate events, as well as intimate bistros. They can be heard every Thursday night at Madame Claude Cafe in downtown Jersey City.
