I know there's been some talk about those of us in the Boston area getting together and bolstering the community of our local GJ scene.
Here's a chance to do just that. Come down to Atwood's Tavern (189 cambridge st. Cambridge, MA) for a night of Swinging Jazz and good fun. The show starts at 10pm this saturday (jul. 14th).
Music will be provided by a very special incarnation of Sinti Rhythm.
The core band of guitars, bass, and clarinet, will be augmented by Saxophonist Andy Voelker, Gillian Delear on Drums (and possibly Washboard), and the Great John Mcgann on guitar.
Andy Voelker is a miraculous Saxophonist who's part of the Round Midnight ensemble that hosts the Matt Murphy's Thursday night Jazz Jam as well as a Resident artist at Atwood's Tavern.
Gillian Delear is a wonderful drummer who can be seen playing gigs all over Boston. Notably she plays as part of Boston's vintage songstress Miss Tess's Bon Ton Parade.
Lastly and certainly not least is the Maestro John Mcgann. John conducts the Berklee Django Ensemble, was one of the esteemed instructors at Andrew Lawrence's DIJ Camp Django, and is even a moderator on this forum! He has more credits to his name than I can put down here, for sure he is a great player... not to be missed.
Hopefully people will come down have a beer, talk Gypsy Jazz, and get a chance to meet more Djangophiles in the area!
