The Tiger Roses
Gypsy Swing Violin and Guitar Duo
Tiger Roses are fast becoming one of London's most sought-after duos. Flitting from the private members' clubs of Mayfair and Soho to wedding receptions at Kew Gardens, from 21st birthday parties at the Lanesborough to Afternoon Tea at The Ritz, this classic yet versatile duo are the perfect addition to your event.
Taking inspiration from the swing of Django and Grappelli, Tiger Roses play an irresistible mixture of the best-loved standards of the 1930's and 40's and popular modern tunes with their own unique twist.
Highlights of their career to date include performing at a private dinner party for HRH Prince William and Kate and members of the Qatari royal family, and a reception for Andrew Lloyd-Weber and Gary Barlow.
Tiger Roses pride themselves on tailoring their repertoire and presentation carefully to create just the right atmosphere for your event.
Although mostly in demand as an acoustic duo, Tiger Roses can provide amplification and are also available as a tri0, quartet or quintet (adding double bass, clarinet or additional guitar)
