Starting tomorrow, French–born guitar virtuoso Stephane Wrembel will host the 2012 Django A Go-Go Festival celebrating the life and music of jazz guitar legend Django Reinhardt. While the event has been an annual New York City tradition since 2005, this year, the show will head out on the road to Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Albany, D.C. and more. In addition to Wrembel, performers include Roy Williams on guitar, David Speranza on bass, Nick Anderson on drums, and David Langlois on washboard. The tour launches tomorrow with a pair of performances this weekend at Joe’s Pub in New York City before going on to the six other cities. The complete list of 2012 Django A Go-Go Festival stops is included below.
According to the release:
“This special night of music will include the music Django made famous during his life, as well as original music from the catalogs of all the players. From “Dark Eyes” to “Nuages”, these masters will add their own creative spin to each of Django’s tunes.”
