Live Music with ' The Gypsy Jazz Project ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sat 15th and Sun 16th Dec. 4:30 - 7:30pm. Free admission.
The Gypsy Jazz Project is a Canberra based quartet playing Gypsy Jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt who was a Romani French jazz guitarist and composer, regarded as one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century. Gypsy Jazz mixes up jazz tunes, pop songs, classical melodies, Russian waltzes and Romany folk tunes in a frantic, dynamic attack that is made for dancing.
Django was the first jazz talent to emerge from Europe and remains the most significant and the original creator of the Gypsy Jazz guitar style. His unique guitar style sometimes called ‘hot club’ jazz is even more impressive because he had only limited use of his left hand after suffering severe burns in a fire.
The Project plays regularly at jazz venues in Canberra and neighbouring regions, as well as private functions, weddings, vineyards and cocktail parties.
