Gypsy Jazz Cruise

Classic Harbor Line

Gypsy Jazz Cruise

 

Vive la France!

Step aboard the Manhattan II and back in time with the 1930s-inspired French-style Gypsy Jazz as you witness the city’s beauty and elegance from the water. Guitarist Alex Simon & his trio perform the musical stylings of Django Reinhardt with dazzling technique and lyrical impressionism. It is a bright but elegant style of acoustic swing that evokes the vibrancy of cosmopolitan life and the folkloric sounds of rural Europe, originating in France.

 

From aboard this elegant classic-inspired yacht, start the evening with a slow pass by our most famous gift from France, the Statue of Liberty.  Classic Harbor Line’s Gypsy Jazz Cruises are offered on select dates in 2019 including these French Holidays: Labour Day (May 1), Bastille Day (July 14) and Armistice Day (November 11)

 

On this cruise you may hear a combination of 1930s French Swing as well as Louis Armstrong hits. Alex Simon has performed at The Guggenheim, B.B. King’s Main Stage, The Rainbow Room, as well as world-renowned cocktail lounges such as Milk & Honey, Bathtub Gin, NoMad, The Roxy, and many other of New York City’s finest venues.
