The Django Festival All-Stars (France) tour the US twice per year, performing at America’s top halls and clubs including Carnegie Hall and Rose Hall. The All-Stars have performed at SF Jazz, the Newport Jazz Festival, the Montreal Jazz Festival, Kennedy Center, Aspen, Taos, Vale, and Moody Festivals, and Birdland Jazz Club
in NYC for 22 years, all to great acclaim.
And on Wednesday, July 20, 2022, they will be performing in Ann Arbor at The Blue LLama.
Django Reinhardt’s unmistakable cool and jumpin’ “joie de vivre” have made him an icon for an unlikely range of luminaries from Carlos Santana to Eric Clapton. Jimi Hendrix named his “Band of Gypsies” in tribute, and Willie Nelson adopted his influence in “country-swing.
The Django Festival Allstars have grown into a brilliantly cohesive group of star musicians who’ve taken America by storm, performing at top concert halls and festivals to standing ovations. The Django Festival Allstars brings this music into today, combining known standards and original music…intoxicating!!
