Join us for another Jazz tea dance in the Ballroom at Stretford Public Hall featuring The Jim Wallace Gypsy Project.
Django with an ipod…
Former GYPSIES OF BOHEMIA lead guitarist JIM WALLACE returns with an all new line up and another Parisienne inspired take on the tunes we all thought we were too cool to like….
Featuring a foot stomping mix of traditional Gypsy Jazz alongside the bands own exhilarating arrangements of contemporary pop songs from the modern era, there’s something for jazz aficionados and music lovers alike. Alongside Jim’s virtuosic Django Reinhardt inspired lead guitar the band features the improvisational talents of some of the North West’s finest gypsy jazz soloists in Andrzej Baranek (accordion) and Andrew Meyer (clarinet) and are backed up by a stellar swinging gypsy rhythm section.
Rarely has such a delicate balance been successfully struck between the artistic and the absurd.
Come and take a peek whats on Django’s playlist as these talented, humorous and charismatic individuals tear through the music of Britney Spears and alike, whilst paying a respectful homage to the unrivalled swinging sounds of The Quintette du Hot Club de France.
The doors and the bar will open at 2.30pm for a 3pm start.
Refreshments and cakes are available on the bar and are not included in ticket price.Bringing your own food and drink will not be permitted.
