San Juan Community Theatre Presents Pearl Django – September 22

 

September sizzles with Pearl Django’s hot club style of gypsy jazz, live on the Whittier Stage.

This form of jazz originated in Parisian jazz clubs of the 1930s—a string-centered, toe tapping, rhythmic style pioneered by Belgian guitarist Django Reinhardt and French-Italian violinist Stéphane Grappelli.

Though still strongly influenced by the music of Reinhardt and Grappelli, the band’s repertoire now includes many original compositions and reaches out across the divides of taste to a wide variety of audiences.

While the band celebrates more than 17 years in existence (including several stops in the Whittier), the band members have changed throughout the years. Founding member Neil Andersson resigned in 2010 to pursue music more leisurely and to allow more time for painting. The quintet of esteemed musicians visiting Friday Harbor in 2012 are Michael Gray, violin; David Lange, accordion; Rick Leppanen, acoustic bass; and Troy Chapman and Ryan Hoffman, guitars.
For ticket information see the San Juan Community Theatre website.
