The band met in autumn 2013 at the Royal College of Music and was started by the band leader Terese Lien Evenstad. The group consists of violin, bass and dual guitars and they play music from the 30's and 40's Paris in the spirit of Django Reinhardts, Stéphane Grapellis and Svend Asmussen.

The music style is called Jazz Manouche but it could also be called String swing and became famous and highly appreciated in the 30's through the French Hot Quintet.

Thou Shalt Swing has a penchant for the acoustic sound and the French Swing is happy and outgoing but also provides ample room for complex solo efforts. The group has played at Stockholm's Jazz Festival. Mainly with songs from the 30's and 40's but they also have well-chosen standards from the American songbook in their repertoire.

With well-known songs and intense solos, the young band gives an exciting and beautiful experience for the audience and creates concerts which is a little beyond the usual.
