Djangatos 1940s Hot Club Swing Dance Night

Djangatos 1940s Hot Club Swing Dance Night

Don’t miss this intimate mid-20th century dance hall jazz experience. Period dress and dance shoes a must! Mountain Music Productions and the Historic Brookdale Lodge are proud to present Hot Club Swing masters Djangatos on Saturday, June 8 from 8:00 to 11:00 pm.

“Djangatos is a Los Gatos based acoustic trio that plays in the improvisational, fiercely rhythmic and lyrical style of Jean 'Django' Reinhardt, the Belgian-born guitarist and composer who is celebrated for elevating so-called “gypsy jazz” to a wildly popular dance music form. The Djangatos ultra traditional Hot Club sound is a banquet of complimentary nuances, warm and smooth, the lead guitar plectrum-forward, technically exquisite, expressive and nimble. The rhythm role serves up the bounce, the driving cadence that puts the thang in the swang. The bass sews the melody and rhythm together providing the heartbeat, occasionally occupying the fast lane with hard-swinging leads.

The Djangatos trio features two accomplished guitar players, Robert Alan Witmeyer on lead and Ron La France on rhythm, and standup bass featuring some of the area’s best musicians. Playing lively sets at familiar venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Santa Cruz as a way to preserve the music and memory of Django, Stéphane, and the Quintette, these hep cats lay down some shimmering sharps and flats” – San Lorenzo Valley Post
