Gypsy Jazz guitars and music in Bay Area this weekend

ChiefbigeasyChiefbigeasy New Orleans, LA✭✭✭ Dupont MDC 50; The Loar LH6, AJL Silent Guitar
I'm in Berkeley CA this week through Sunday. Any Gypsy guitar dealers in this area other than Gryphon? Any music in SF or the area?

Saw something at the Ashkenaz music venue for tonight, but not much else. SF Hot Club is not playing this week.

Thanks for any tips

    The show at the Ashkenaz tonight IS Paul Mehling of Sf hot club. It's his other band, "Le Jazz hot", that plays the same type of stuff under a different name.

    Go see Le Jazz Hot. Paul Mehling is awesome. He also does lessons, as well, and everybody raves about them. Schedule is at
    As far as guitars, Gryphon is a great shop, but probably won't have more than a new Gitane. You can usually check their inventory on line. Haight Ashbury Music had a couple of gypsy guitars the last time I was there.

    Did catch the show, and it as a treat to see Paul and the group play in person. The venue, however, framed the show as a swing dance, so most of the music was slanted toward that speed--less of a concert than a dance. A good night of live gypsy jazz music, nonetheless.
