“WOW! Last night was fun – we had a packed house for Moustache Yourself and they blew the roof off the place.” – BLU Jazz+
Gypsy jazz, also known as gypsy swing, hot club jazz, or by the French name, “jazz manouche” is a style of jazz music made famous by guitarist Django Reinhardt in the 1930s. It’s infectious rhythm and exotic but familiar melodies will capture your soul and transport you to a different time and place.
Band members are (nearly all of whom bear moustaches, a staple in the gypsy jazz lifestyle) Jeremy Jones (guitar), Brent Hamker (guitar), Brad Wagner (clarinet and sax), and Matthew DeRubertis (acoustic bass) are on a mission to incorporate the entire history of gypsy jazz into an eclectic mix of songs from ranging from the style’s beginnings to present day, which includes originals written by members.
