La contre-attaque du jazz musette.


Beyond the musical aspect, swing of France brings back to life the golden age of jazz musette by bringing a new image.

Contre-attaque ?

The Swing Of France group is an acoustic Jazz Musette quartet created in 2010 in the cultural metropolis of Nantes. Coming from the emblematic accordion/swing gypsy guitar duo with Erwan Mellec and Thomas Le Briz, the band now performs with Erwan Salmon (saxophone) and Fréderic Robert (drums) as well as with Daniel Givone (guitar) and Erwan Salmon (saxophone) for the "Manouche Partie" project.

Les musiciens.

The four musicians have varied experiences in music, bringing a new colour to the musette while keeping the essence that makes the identity of the style.

Erwan Mellec


Accordionist with singular musical colours, jazz, hip hop, nuevo tango, blues. He enjoys music with his own style

Thomas Le Briz


Guitarist specialized in the gypsy style, he brings a French swing while borrowing features from the blues. A unique sound that takes Django to new horizons.

Erwan Salmon


Multi-functional saxophonist, a real Swiss army knife at the service of French swing! Squeaky solos and formidable bass lines.... OMG!

Frédéric Robert


A rhythm machine, master of time and space... under his fingers is a contagious swing that will leave its mark on people's minds.
