Trio Manor Manouche reawaken the infectious gypsy jazz pompe rhythm of the swinging 40s and 50s with their unique repertoire of tunes and captivating performances. Guitarists Nev Willis and Thomas Abrahams demonstrate the technical wizardry of Django Reinhardt's guitar style across an array of gypsy swing, bossa's, waltzes and original music alongside Jarrod Coombes' hands sliding up and down the Double Bass. Regularly surprising audiences with their arrangements of many well known songs seamlessly crafted into that recognisable gypsy jazz sound they maintain an appeal far beyond the reaches of the typical jazz trio.

"Hi Thomas. We've just got back from honeymoon and I thought I'd drop you a quick note to say thank you for everything. You were the part of our wedding that we had the most positive comments about! All of our guests loved your music and we can't thank you enough for performing. It was perfect! Thank you again" - Adam and Hannah - Aug 2017
"Tom Abrahams is an outstanding guitarist. Imagine yourself sitting in a 1930s Paris bar listening to Django Reinhardt? Expect original Jazz and Gypsy Jazz classics, as well as some brilliantly crafted contemporary pop covers done in a Gypsy Jazz style." - The Hop and Huffkin Bar and Restaurant

"You was so good!! Thank you so much for playing at our wedding, everyone really enjoyed listening to you play" - Dave & Danielle - Aug 2016
"Thomas was absolutely amazing! Perfect for our wedding and I'm sure many others. Thomas really worked around us and played some really technical songs along side his interpretation on Disney songs. He was so relaxed with us making our wedding that extra bit special. He is worth every penny! Great guy, great musician."- Mr & Mrs James" - Dec 2016
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for Saturday! You did a superb job for us and we're so grateful! When I walked up the stairs and heard you start playing snow patrol it made me cry as you'd done it perfectly!! And the same for the Stevie wonder signed, sealed... It made me want to dance down the aisle! Thank you so much again - you really are extremely talented!!" - Martin & Lisa - Sep 2016
"I live for music. At the turn of the millennium I purchased my first guitar at the age of ten. After performing in several bands throughout my teens I then went on to study Classical Guitar with Vincent Lindsey-Clark at the University of Southampton. Since then I became progressively more obsessed with Django Reinhardt which has led me down the route of playing Gypsy Jazz at many different venues across the UK from bars to clubs, restaurants to wedding ceremonies and care homes to outdoor events. However, versatility has always been my main goal with the Guitar as the more I fall in love with music the more music I fall in love with. Expect the unexpected... Manouche tones fused with exotic Latin remixes of nightclub anthems alongside unique fingerstyle arrangements of popular songs across the decades... Hip-Hop vocals alongside synth guitar loops also feature in function band Tundra."
