Info zu When Lights Are Low
“…with lightness and humour in their playing as well as great feeling and passion for swing-jazz, this band makes you feel the music swingin’, makes you happy and makes you wanna dance…”
„...I was pleasantly surprised to become acquainted with The Coquette Jazz Band, a formation of young musicians that continues to play this style at a very high level. Based in Vienna, Austria, all the members of this group master their instrument and listen to the pioneers of jazz. This, combined with their excellent arrangements, enthusiasm and passion for the music, will assure them a place among the best jazz bands in Europe.” (Frank Roberscheuten)

The Coquette Jazz Band
is one of the best traditional jazz groups in Vienna. The members of the band are based in Austria, taking an important part of the local jazz scene. Even though they’re young, they are highly committed to perform the music of the last century at the best possible level and to keep its elegancy alive.
They’ve already performed on Europe’s favourite stages, jazz clubs and festivals, like Jazzland – Vienna, Spirit de Milan – Italy, Jazz Capital Festival (HU), Royal Garden Jazz Club – Graz, International Dixie & Swing Festival – Fürstenfeld, Lamantin Jazz Festival (HU) or the New-Orleans Swing Festival (HU).
In 2016 Matyas Papp and Matyas Bartha formed The Coquette Jazz Band to bring back the golden age of jazz to audiences across Europe.The main profiles of the ensemble are danceable swing music from the 1930’s, 40’s, the sound of the “Dixieland-revival” era. The Coquette Jazz Band plays innovative arrangements along with popular melodies from Count Basie, Fats Waller, John Kirby, Louis Armstrong, Jimmy Lunceford, Bobby Hackett, Benny Goodman, Bix Beiderbecke, Ruby Braff, Chick Webb, Ben Webster, Erroll Garner, Teddy Wilson, Jack Teagarden, Lester Young.
Thanks to the popular melodies the band can be a great introduction for jazz newcomers, and with also their experiences and finely tuned sound an impressive showcase to please long-time fans of the music.

The standalone atmosphere that one can only find at their concerts led them to many invitations, amongst others they performed at festivals like Jump Up North, Maribor Swing Festival, Ljubljana Sweet-Jazz, Ljubljana Sweet -Swing, Spirit de Milan, Amsterdam Lindy Exchange, TranSwingania, Brussels Lindy Exchange, Houba Swing Festival, Swing City Zagreb, Ljubljana Vintage Exchange, Lindy Cats Festival, One-Minute Challenge, Ice Swing Holiday, Jazz Capital Festival, Sziget Festival, New Orleans Jazz Festival…
