with Gypsy Roots, Dallas Vietty,  Barry Wahrhaftig,  &   the Woodshedders! 3 great acts celebrate… it’s Django ‘s Birthday on Jan. 23!!  One of the first prominent European jazz musicians, Django Reinhardt remains one of the most renowned jazz guitarists. Tonight’s show is FEATURING:
The Woodshedders are an original spark on the American soundscape. This talented bunch has mined its musical coal and renders to us a slew of new songs and sounds inspired by the old-times. With a fiery fiddle, gypsy guitar, rambling bass, pouncing drums, and songbird harmonies (and a host of awesome guests) the band veers from hard-swinging Django-esque romps to hot country jump blues; old-timey waltzes to misty mountain ballads. The delivery is spontaneous and genuine, and irreverently harrows the boundaries of contemporary roots music. Their debut album Catch That Yardbird graces the SoundStage! Top Ten List, and was honored Roots Album of the Year by JustPlainFolks in 2009, the world’s largest independent music awards.

Gypsy Roots: Among the groups helping keep gypsy jazz alive and bringing the genre to a wider audience is Richmond-based Gypsy Roots, a five-man group that will mix original compositions and jazz standards. Toe tapping energy from this Django inspired group of accomplished musicians…
