SJCT Hot Gypsy Jazz! Pearl Django

San Juan Island Community Theatre

100 Second Ave.
Friday Harbor, WA 98250
USA

Summer sizzles with a visit from the Northwest's gypsy jazz kings!

The band celebrates more than two decades in existence, having played throughout the world, including at the prestigious Festival Django Reinhardt in Samois sur Seine and being featured on NPR's All Things Considered.  The band's signature style is marked by pristine and dexterous string work, colors of Bal Musette, the steady pulse of rhythm guitar and an unmistakable swing that delights audiences of all musical sensibilities. This form of jazz originated in Parisian jazz clubs of the 1930s-a string-centered, toe tapping, rhythmic style pioneered by Belgian guitarist Django Reinhardt and French-Italian violinist Stéphane Grappelli.

The quintet of esteemed musicians visiting Friday Harbor in June are Michael Gray, violin; David Lange, accordion; Rick Leppanen, bass; and Tim Lerch and Jim Char, guitars.
