This month we've lined up yet another extraordinary set of acts:
★ SWING ZAZOU
We're delighted to welcome back our old friends and firm favourites, Swing Zazou. An 8 piece band who have played for us many times before, but who's music and swingin' modern take on vintage sounds from 'Diga Diga Do' to 'It Ain't Right' just keeps on getting better. These guys specialise in Electro Swing with beats that really do swing. Even the Lindy Hoppers will be dancing their socks off!
★ GYPSIES OF BOHEMIA
We were so excited when we came across this lot. A Django Reinhardt style trio that do contemporary songs in the classic 20's Parisian style. Not since The Lost FIngers has this been done so well.... we are really excited to be bringing these guys to Brighton. Just listen to their 'original' versions of Blondie's Heart Of Glass or Britney's Toxic to see what we mean....
★ THE ELECTRO SWING REVOLUTION DJs
All the way from Berlin we have not one, but two of Europe's leading Electro Swing players. Johannes and Wolfram - AKA Louie Prima and Justin Fidele - are the DJs and promoters behind the eponymous German compilation series and club nights above and will be bringing us a flavour of what they do in Berlin.
★ DJ and Compere NICK HOLLYWOOD
Described as a 'suave impressario' by The Independent and 'the godfather of Electro Swing' by The Telegraph, Nick is behind the Freshly Squeezed record label, Radio Show and in particular, the award-winning WHITE MINK : BLACK COTTON compilation series...
★ ROSIE ROWLANDS - AERIAL
One of the stand-out circus performers we worked with over the summer - and there were many - Rosie is an Aerial Contortionist who quite simply blew us away with her agility and skill. She's very much a new-comer, fresh out of London's Circus Space School, but we predict big things...
★ DEPARTMENT OF BRILLIANT AV
One of the signature elements of a White Mink night, maverick AV genius of crazy light-bending inventions and trickery. Gerred has created visuals for us but is also behind the success of people like Public Service Broadcasting and lots more...
★ As ever, expect high production values, amazing music, world-class performers, a fantastic atmosphere and surprises galore!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We were named by Mixmag last year as the second best party in the UK. As the originators of a speakeasy and swing revival, we are proud to be "taking clubland by storm" (The Daily Telegraph). We founded London's Electro Swing Club which blew up into a world-wide phenomena and are responsible for the eponymous, album-charting White Mink : Black Cotton (Electro Swing vs Speakeasy Jazz) CD series. We also curate numerous amazing festival stages annually and continue to promote sell-out UK shows by bands like Parov Stelar and Caravan Palace.
