Billets Doux is a trio, playing jazz in the tradition of Django Reinhardt and his Quintette du Hot Club de France from the 1930's and 40's (a type of jazz often known as ”jazz manouche” or ”gypsy jazz”).

The current instrumentation is solo guitar, rhythm guitar and contrabass. To this, vocals are added on many numbers.

Although Billets Doux is based in Brussels in Belgium, the members are a mix of nationalities: a Belgian, a Frenchman and a Swede.

On the songlist are jazz standards from the 30s and 40s, a number of compositions by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, but also some chansons françaises and, perhaps less usual, a couple of Swedish songs.
