Looking for music to juggle to.

My brother is performing a juggling routine at a convention in a couple of months. What music should he use?

He's already done one 'formal' show (BYJOTY - won the Crawley award if you want to know). The music he used for that was Limehouse Blues -- by Django Reinhardt -- which was perfect. He's slightly retro and the music fitted his act exactly without being the same rock/pop that everyone else played. You can see a music video he filmed at JugglingTV
(please ignore the first minute, it's something of an in-joke apparently).
The next show is slightly longer and he's looking for some new music. It should:
- not have vocals.
- not be rock, pop or metal. Distorted guitars = no.
- be fast and have a relatively consistent rhythm, although some sharp changes are also good.
- be 'different'.
Retro is good too. He's looked into some old swing jazz but can't really find anything that suits. Recommendations, please =). Thanks all.
