About

In the 1930s, a style of music became popular known as "Gypsy Jazz." This style of music was made famous by guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stéphane Grappelli. Gypsy Jazz began with French musicians trying to emulate the jazz music coming out of America, while incorporating the gypsy influences that flavor their music. Today this music is kept alive by a group known as Le Hotclub de Biglick. The authentic gypsy sound is brought to the group by violinist Dan Adams of Bucovina (first chair violinist in national Philharmonic orchestras of Lautari, Doina Moldovei, and Balada).

Concerts

Concerts display the energetic dance music that has that unmistakable gypsy sound. Performances include jazz standards and original compositions, as well as their own arrangements of traditional gypsy folk songs

Workshops

Workshops include discussions on musical techniques of guitar, violin, and upright bass, and an overview of the history of Gypsy Jazz.
