The Djangoners

When: Thursdays, 7-9 p.m. Continues through May 31 2018

The Djangoners take their inspiration from Django Reinhardt and his famous Jazz band from late 1930s Paris and London - The Hot Club of France - arguably the most famous Jazz band Europe ever produced. Django Reinhardt was born into a family of Gypsies and began playing music early but at age 18, he was seriously injured in a fire that rendered two fingers on his left hand useless and doctors believed he would never play guitar again. Reinhardt persevered in rehabilitation and developed a technique using only two fingers for his spectacular guitar solos.
