DJANGO A GOGO ROCHESTER 2023: THE 20th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION!
Django à Gogo is a music festival dedicated to Django Reinhardt, one of the greatest Gypsy guitarists who ever lived. The festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary and will feature a series of concerts with the Stephane Wrembel band from NYC.
They will be joined by very special guests from France: Simba Baumgartner, who is none other than Django Reinhardt’s grandson and a terrific virtuoso in his own right, and Aurore Voilqué on violin, who is simply an incredible musician and the most in-demand violinist in France today.
They will also be joined by 20-year-old guitar virtuoso Sam Farthing from Baltimore, and Bobby Henrie, the great guitar master located in Ithaca, NY. There will be guitar workshops as well, open to all levels and ages. All info is listed at www.Stephanewrembel.com.

DJANGO A GOGO 2023: 20TH ANNIVERSARY PRESENTS
DJANGO REINHARDT AND THE GYPSIES:
A 1000-YEAR MUSICAL JOURNEY FROM INDIA TO FRANCE
On the second night, Friday October 13, titled “Traditional Gypsy Jazz and late Django”, the band will continue their journey by going through the whole second part of late Django’s hot jazz, which had by then been heavily influenced by Bebop and had become extremely sophisticated. This evolution gave birth to the now traditional Gypsy Jazz, a completely unique and virtuosic way of playing the guitar born from the Django angle. The band will also play some of Stephane’s compositions, including ‘Bistro Fada’ and ‘Big Brother’, two themes he wrote for Grammy Award and Academy Award-winning Woody Allen movies.
