About Django’s Jewels:
On a mission to capture the sound of Django Reinhardt’s Gypsy jazz of the 30’s and 40’s, Django’s Jewels are the next generation of Gypsy Swing in Western Canada. The Jewels swing hard and fast, with energy and lots of feels. This string band plays with traditional Gypsy acoustic guitars, while violin, upright bass and the ODD SWING drummer completes the Jewels’ unique vintage sound. The raw swing of Django’s Jewels packs a serious bite not heard often in the biz today. Www.djangosjewels.com.
