Cat Skellington is a gypsy jazz band based on the Isle of Wight. We live and gig on the Isle of Wight, London and the South. The typical line up of the band is a quartet with double bass, rhythm and lead guitars and clarinet/vocals.


Influenced mostly by the great French gypsy guitar player Django Reinhardt the music we play is largely from the swing era of the 1920s - 40s. It is a style of music with an irresistible beat and a boundless energy known to induce toe tapping of extreme vivacity. 

Our latest album features:

Jez Gray - Double Bass

Hugo Boswell - Lead Guitar

Steve Thompson - Rhythm Guitar

David Hences - Violin

Richard White - Clarinet and Vocals

Alice Lee - Vocals

The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Tim Charlton.
