A revelation. — David Fricke, Rolling Stone
A John Coltrane-ish search for a moment of musical nirvana. — Variety
One of the greatest guitar players I've ever seen...
and I don't say that lightly. — Josh Baron, Relix Magazine
Virtuosic Gypsy swing guitarist Stephane Wrembel is the second coming of Django Reinhardt — a fretboard wizard who embellishes the hot jazz of the 1930s with flourishes of world music to create a sound all his own. Born in Paris and educated at Berklee College of Music, Wrembel wrote the theme song to Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, has performed at the Academy Awards, and is generally one of the most astonishing musicians you'll ever hear. He's here with his quartet, each member a monster musician in his own right.
Stephane Wrembel replaces the previously scheduled Lost Bayou Ramblers.
