Recently the Quartet had the pleasure of playing for fabulous sculptor @kate_mccgwire ‘s house warming party in Weybridge Surrey. Set on the river, it was a full on festival style bash with cocktails, music, pizza van, Rachmaninov bunting and all day/night revelry. We hit the stage to round off the evening and get guests up and dancing. Everyone provided snacks for the 15 billion mosquitos who gate crashed this excellent party.

This coming Saturday 28th July 7-9pm, I am very excited to be performing solo at @turnercontemporary on Margate seafront. As part of their Summer season of events, I’ll be stationed outside the cafe pomping out Django-inspired lines as the sun sets like a J.M.W.Turner painting.  Come on down and enjoy fine food, drink and sounds of the Tracey Emin bed of Gypsy Swing guitar!  I’ll be playing there again on Saturday 25th August 7-9pm.

Swanage Jazz Festival @swanagejazzfestival was a lot of fun! So chuffed to be playing alongside a stellar lineup of bands and musicians. The Trio had three performances over the weekend at the White Swan, the Con Club & the Black Swan. The weather was set on scorchio with fab audiences for all the shows. We even had a surprise fourth gig at The Mowlem Theatre backing up Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club mainstay Andy Davies on trumpet with our old friend Pete Watson joining us on accordion to make it up to a pumping quintet. Top respect to jazz guitar supremo Nigel Price for making the festival a raging success and generally going above and beyond.

It’s been a few years but great to be back at the stunning @southfarm1 in Shingay cum Wendy, Cambridgeshire. This time with the quartet playing for Paul & Karen as they tied the knot on a gorgeous Summer’s day. Paul was a Gypsy jazz Skype student of mine a few years back and a fine guitarist in many styles so I invited him to play a few tunes. Unfortunately the champagne had well and truly kicked in for him so we had to postpone the Minor Swing shred-off. South Farm has some lovely creatures and Romany caravans too. Thank you Sarah for the hospitality, putting us under a big shady tree and keeping the ice-cold water flowing on this scorcher of a day.

Nice for the Quartet to play at Hollie and Alex’s wedding @greatfosters over the weekend. The weather held up for them as guests tucked into canapés and champagne while we provided the swing an’ ting background. Lovely gardens at this establishment, plenty of bees, bees 🐝 are fab!

NEW Quartet video 'Sweet Georgia Brown' Apparently the origin of this famous tune is that it was named after the daughter (1911) of Dr. George Thaddeus Brown, a longtime member of the State House of Representatives for Georgia. She was to be named Georgia after the state, an anecdote which would be directly referenced by the song's lyric: "Georgia claimed her – Georgia named her." It's also - The Harlem Globetrotters theme tune, a classic brand of hair pomades, a female wrestler, a karaoke brand, a bunch of restaurants, a chocolate brand and slang for heroin.

Fab to be back at Steyning Jazz Club recently. Another full house for us, thank you lovely people! The club tablecloths were pure ‘Gingham style’ but we resisted playing any C&W/line dancing classics. Instead we hit them with tunes from our new videos, next one out later this week. Gearing up for a busy Summer with weddings, private bookings and a few cool public events on the horizon.

Bank holiday weekend in @fezmargate the only place in town where you get a vintage frock sale in the morning, Gypsy swing guitar in the afternoon and everyone 80’s disco dancing in the evening courtesy of MC Scotty. Very cool to grab the attention of supa fly Natty Bo @nattycongeroo who was in town. Thanks Fez peeps for your attentiveness on this most sweltering of days. Here’s also a snap of regular Claude chillaxing with my guitar case.

Great time playing in duo format for the lovely people @revelationashford as part of their ‘Fireside Sparks’ concert series on Sunday. The venue was St Mary’s Church in Ashford town centre. Despite the super hot weather we managed to pull in a full audience who, for some crazy reason, decided to come and see us play Gypsy jazz and not stay outside soaking up the rays. Thank you fab people for spending the afternoon with us 🙏 we salute you!

A completely fabulous time this last weekend at the March Manouche Festival in the gorgeous setting of Menai in Anglesey Wales, playing alongside, listening to, jamming and hanging out with awesome musicians and friends all nutty about Django Reinhardt. Bravo to Stewart and the MM team for a massive effort organising the fun and games we all had. Here’s a few pics by @emmalintern of my Sunday concert and two workshops. The workshops were held in the botanical gardens & the Antelope de bar. For the concert, first half I played a traditional style duo with my talented/dear friend ‘machete’ @bertograma then I kicked him off and played the next half with my superb buddies Kourosh Kanani guitar, Matt Holborn violin and Greg Robley double bass before getting Roberto back up for a fat quintet finale. Feeling a bit tired now as the three days of partying has taken its toll 😴  To hire Jonny for your event, please visit http://jonnyhepbir.co.uk or email info@jonnyhepbir.co.uk Watch the band in action at www.youtube.com/JonnyHepbirTrio  #gypsyjazz #gypsyswing #gypsyjazzfestival #djangoreinhardt #guitar #violin #doublebass #concert #workshop #wales #menaibridge #thomastelford #guitarworkshop #music #acousticguitar #acousticmusic #hotjazz #friends #musicians #swingjazz #marchmanouche
Here’s a clip of the new Trio video 'Topsy' This classic instrumental rose to the giddy heights of number 14 in the charts for Benny Goodman in 1938. We'd like to put it out as a tribute to Topsy the elephant (1875-1903). Here it is in a Gypsy swing style in front of the fabulous @fezmargate Fez bar, easy to get tipsy in there.

Last night I had the pleasure of playing a private party at the scrumptious, award-winning @buoyandoyster. It was a rare excuse to wear my tuxedo which hadn’t seen daylight since I wore it to Sir Terence Conran's 80th Birthday bash at his home in 2011. The trio played an intimate set for Sir Terence after the meal and a firework display rivalling the London millennium one. I got to meet John Snow, Michael Winner, Mary Quant, Jasper Conran and loads of fashion/design A listers. Imagine my surprise that I could still fit into the thing although the trousers had strangely become a bit pinchy. Didn’t get a pic of the filled-out version from last night so instead here’s a yesteryear one of the baggy tux with Sir Terence's wife, the lovely Lady Vicki and her daughter Hattie.

An unusual Trio booking for the opening of a snazzy new house in London, designed by our architect client Tom. Eglon House in Primrose Hill was inspired by the iconic Maison de Verre in Paris. Added features included a swimming pool with rising mechanical floor! The classic original pictures of Maison de Verre were taken by photographer Michael Carapetian in the ‘60’s, so they decided to fly him in to give a small talk on both buildings. The house also comes with pictures taken by Mr Carapetian. The price tag was a bit of an eye-waterer but just think of the banging parties you could have! They opted for our Parisian style Trio with violin to give the aural flavour for the event while invitees munched and glugged top nibbles and tipples.

Very cool to be invited back in to do a podcast for the lovely Mr T @seasidesesh this time he’s got me nattering on about some of the original music I’ve done over the years and the usual obsession with Gypsy swing guitar and Django. When it comes out there’ll be a few self-penned tracks from the past on there to put the waffle in context.

The Trio with violin and bass, a popular beat combo for many an event including this double 50th Birthday party at the unassuming but super-hip Islington Metal Works in London. While a modest 250 close friends and family got up close and personal with the cocktails and street food, we pumped Django-infused swing right into their party ears, ‘ave it!
