Bow Tie Bureaucracy (BTB) is an elegant and sophisticated function band that specialises in music of the Swing era.

BTB is led by vocalist and saxophonist Gavin Minter, and includes some of Cape Town’s finest musicians. BTB can be adapted to suit any function: they can perform as a 7-piece band, a 10-piece band or even a full 22-piece big band.

The music is always the finger-snapping, toe-tapping music of the ’40s and ’50s, covering a wide range of vocal and instrumental music in the vein of Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé, Tony Bennett and other well-known jazz crooners and composers.
