Swing Star plays Gypsy Jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt’s Hot Club of France.
This musical style includes swinging jazz, Waltz, passionate Ballads, Bossa Nova and Waltz, as well as the sound of European Gypsies.
The group of guys; Steve Elliott on guitar, Loren Tilley on guitar, and Michael Guzalak on clarinet and sax, got together on Maui in early 2018.
Steve is the founder and instigator of the group, so you can blame him. His burning passion for Gypsy Jazz drew in Loren next, and Michael soon joined in to form Swing Star.
All the members are multi-instrumentalists and over the years have played in many different bands and styles of music, from Accordion to Zydeco.
