The Django Festival Allstars
“Some of the greatest musicians in the world!” –Leonardo DiCaprio
World Tour! Straight from France, The Django Festival Allstars bring the music of the legendary Gypsy Jazz Guitarist Django Reinhardt into the 21st century. Their unique, high energy performance pays tribute to one of the greatest guitar players of all time. Reinhardt’s driving, swinging style of “hot jazz” sizzles as masterfully played by the Allstars, who unleash their own interpretations, arrangements and original compositions with stunning virtuosity.
This internationally renowned group prominently features one of Europe’s greatest musical families: guitarist/violinist Dorado Schmitt and his two sons Samson and Amati. The band also features virtuoso violinist Pierre Blanchard and accordionist extraordinaire Ludovic Beier. In addition, on rhythm guitar, DouDou Cuillerier, who also brings the house down with his scat singing, and Francko Mehrstein. On bass, Antonio Licusati and Gino Roman.
