Traveling the world with their unique, high-energy performances, the Django Festival All-Stars pay tribute to the style of Django Reinhardt (1910-1953), one of the greatest guitar players of all time and the first European jazz musician to make major contributions to the development of the guitar genre.
His driving, swinging style became known as “hot jazz” and it continues to grow in popularity globally. The Django All-Stars honor the best energetic traditions of this French Gypsy Jazz, but add their own creative interpretations, arrangements, and original compositions, all with the stunning virtuosity typical of these highly regarded players. The Django Festival All-Stars include Dorado Schmitt, legendary gypsy guitarist, his guitar-playing sons, Samson, Amati and Bronson, accordion phenomenon Ludovic Beier, Pierre Blanchard on violin, Franco Mehrstein on rhythm guitar, and Brian Torff on bass.
