Django Schmango are a highly regarded Hot Club style group of local musicians.

The band’s roots are firmly in the music made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, a style marked by dexterous string work, the steady pulse of rhythm guitar and an unmistakable swing that is really infectious.

Get your swing on for a crossfire of stunning solos, breathtaking rhythms and constant invention, melded with the gypsy sense of entertainment. Django Schmango is gypsy jazz performed with verve, skill and an obvious pleasure that’s irresistible to jazz and non-jazz listeners alike.
