The String Beans were formed in 2014 by professional guitarists Jake
Stentiford and Chris Twigg. The plan was to play a mixture of old gypsy jazz
standards and modern day rock/pop classics with a gypsy twist. Having
quickly made an impact on the Manchester acoustic scene with their first live
shows at the end of the year, the duo has since expanded into a variety of line
ups that can now offer vocals, upright bass, violin and drums as well. Known
for their frantic and heavily improvised live shows mixed with intricately
arranged medleys expect to see The String Beans busking in a town near you

Alongside their touring and busking exploits The String Beans are also
available to hire as a more traditional background music act for restaurants,
bars, weddings and other events. The String Beans Party Band is also
available as evening entertainment for wedding and corporate parties as
something a bit different to the usual function band.
