DJANGO FESTIVAL ALL-STARS
July 21, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$34 – $39
This event is presented in partnership with Jazz Aspen Snowmass.
Renowned French artists who’ve performed their hot and swingin’ “Gypsy Jazz” Django Tribute at the famed Birdland NYC Club for nine sold-out years. The Festival celebrates the music of legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt who teamed with famed jazz violinist Stephanie Grappelli in the 30s and 40s to create the Quintet of the Hot Club de France which went on to become one of the most important jazz partnerships in history.
“The Django Reinhardt Festival is a different kind of musical event. It has about as much in common with a conventional night-club experience as a tight-rope walker does a ballerina, or Coney Island does with Carnegie Hall. There’s a more visceral thrill to it, and a hard competitive edge,” – Wall Street Journal.
