  • Show Description
  • Cafe Django is inspired by the unique spirit of Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt’s Hot Club de France’s famous music of the 30s/40s, as well as featuring blues, big band and 50s swing favourites. Peter’s early harmonica inspiration was Larry Adler the harmonica virtuoso who recorded 4 tracks with Django.. and Peter was subsequently proud to be invited to play at the ‘Celebration of Larry Adler’s Life’ to a celebrity audience at The Arts Theatre.

    Cafe Django has played many venues including L’Escargot,The Arts Club-Dover Street, Le Quecumbar, Momo’s, Brassiere Toulouse Lautrec, Gaz’s Rockin’ Blues Soho and The Pheasantry Kings Road. Their Red Hot & Live CD is the result of a fabulous gig at their special venue The Chelsea Art Club.

    The Band features all leading musicians and is one of the world’s few (only?) harmonica led gypsy jazz swing bands, especially with its motto “It’s Party Time”! So come on down to Crazy Coqs where we are proud to play.. and enjoy a fun and musical evening with us.

    PG says “With Cafe Django I have the privilege to play with some of UK’s finest and well known musicians of the style and whilst true to the soul of the music we also love including blues, jump, big band and sometimes Duke Ellington, Ray Charles and Johnny Cash music with the same fervour and integrity as gypsy jazz.. It’s the feeling and commitment that makes it all ring true.. So let’s Swing and Rock and sometimes Dance…”
