The Django Reinhardt Festival carries on the legacy of gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt with top players from Europe combined with America’s great jazz stars to bring joy to the public with its swinging sound, virtuosity, romantic melodies, and camaraderie amongst musicians. The Django Reinhardt Festival was launched in 2000 and established a home at the legendary club, Birdland in New York City. 2022 will mark its 22nd anniversary, and it’s still going strong. The festival celebrates the music of legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt who teamed with famed jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli in the 30’s and 40’s to create the Quintet of the Hot club de France which went on to become one of the most important jazz partnerships in history.
