Now in Auckland she has had the opportunities to play with great musicians and is happy to be a part of the new project Gypsy Jones.
Phillip Beatson - Guitar
Is a kiwi guitarist playing gypsy jazz, strongly influenced by Django Reinhardt and other modern players in the style.
He has been playing around Auckland in his quartet Twistin' The Swing for eight years as well as other swing and gypsy groups.
Having completed his Batchelor of Music at The University of Auckland, Doug cut his teeth on Auckland's jazz, rock, folk and pop scenes separately, on multiple instruments.
Because of this Doug brings an eclectic style to his long time passion of Swing manouche.
His musical career, being as diverse as the culture of travellers from which gypsy jazz gets its name, Culminates in this style as a full display of his skill and passion.
Dave Schaevitz - Double Bass
Originally from Philadelphia, USA, Dave is very grateful to now be in Auckland.
Music has been a huge part of his life ever since primary school.
He started out as a trombonist, but always had the bass in tow.
Now primarily a double bass player as well as electric bassist, he has been playing in jazz combos, Latin dance, urban gospel and pop bands for over 20 years.
