The Swing Ninjas appearing at this event

A Brighton original busking band, they blend guitar, sax and helicon tuba and turn the venue into a toe tapping feast of lively harmonies. Judging by the ripple of bobbing heads, their gypsy swing music spans all ages with such an infectious vibe that it takes you all the way back to a nostalgic period somewhere between the World Wars for a little jazz education.
