Performing Arts: Music
Gypsy jazz, also known as gypsy swing, hot club jazz, or by its French name, “Jazz Manouche”, is a musical style made famous in the 1930s by guitarist Django Reinhardt. Northeast Ohio’s leading gypsy jazz quartet, Moustache Yourself, is on a mission to incorporate the entire history of this style into a mix of songs ranging from its beginning to to the present day. Clarinetist Brad Wagner, bassist Matthew DeRubertis, and guitarists Brent Hamker and Jeremy Jones have played with such acts as Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, Wesley Bright & The Honeytones, and Ernie Krivda’s big band. Their infectious rhythm and exotic melodies will capture your soul and transport you to a different time and place. Please enjoy this rare treat of old world sounds!
