    Gypsy Swing Cats

    The trio known as the Gypsy Swing Cats perform an energetic and highly rhythmic blend of swing, jazz, and blues. “This is music which combines gypsy melodies and rhythms with the influences of American jazz steeped in the aura of 1930s Paris,” says guitarist Steve Nichols. “Charming, cool, and classy. The music is thoroughly modern, infused by the wild, free, exciting sound of American jazz that transformed the old into the new. Swing supercharging the music of gypsy fire and melancholia.”

    Nichols has performed or shared the stage with B.B. King, Charlie Daniels, Lou Rawls, Barney Kessel, Billy Cobham, John Anderson, and Patty Lovelace. Guitarist Guy Gonzales has shared billing with Larry Coryell, Sonny Rollins, and Pancho Sanchez, as well as performing for both President Ford and President Clinton.

    QUEL BORDEL (QB!) was formed in San Diego, CA in 2013 w/ a Ukrainian, two Filipino brothers, a classically trained violinist and a punk rock drummer. After the better part of a decade, they have had multiple releases and kept up a vigorous touring regiment of over 150+ shows a year. The band has toured the US, Canada, and Europe, and they have made a small dent in the folk-punk music scene: coining their own sub-genre “world punk.”  During 2020 they took the opportunity to work on and complete their first full gypsy jazz album entitled Dinner For Derelicts. 

    QUEL BORDEL! is noted for their wild performances and danceable beats but also plays toned down sets of gypsy jazz. QB! has headlined sweaty, high-energy shows at House of Blues (Mainstage), The Holding Company, and The Casbah. Likewise, the band has shared the stage with: Flatfoot 56, Metallachi, The Rum Jacks, The Real McKenzies, Diego’s Umbrella, Sprung Monkey, Magic Giant, Young Dubliners, Dublin City Ramblers, Bridge City Sinners, Daze ‘N Daze, Dirty Kid Discount, and many others.
