Happy birthday, Django and Stephane! Join Bayou City Swing in a birthday bash to celebrate the two masters on January 19 at Shoeshine Charley's Big Top Lounge! BCS plays hommage to Django Reinhardt (1/23/1910) and Stephane Grappelli (1/26/1908), the founders of the Quintette du Hot Club de France with two sets! The first one showcasing original tunes, arrangement of popular, folk, and classical pieces with renditions influenced by the birthday boys and the second set will consist of works that were part of the repertoire of the Hot Club Quintet. Let's go back in time to the Montparnasse district of 1930s Paris, so put on your fancy shoes and dress the part if you'd like - just no smoking indoors. ;) $5 donation at the door.
