SPR Presents Pearl Django
Spend an elegant evening with Pearl Django, performing energetic and exciting Gypsy Jazz in the style of Django Reinhart and the Hot Club of France this November 20. The group adds traditional jazz classics and the feel of American swing for an unforgettable musical delight. “Irresistible to jazz and non-jazz listeners alike,” says the Seattle Weekly.
The concert takes place Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014 starting at 7 p.m. at the Bing Crosby Theater, 901 W. Sprague Ave. Tickets are $20 for main floor and lower balcony seating, $18 for upper balcony, plus a $2 Bing Restoration Fee. Proceeds benefit Spokane Public Radio. Tickets are on sale beginning October 16 at all TicketsWest Outlets, at (800) 325 SEAT, or online at TicketsWest.com.
The group, based in the Seattle area, last played for Spokane Public Radio in 2007, playing concerts in both Sandpoint and Spokane. Each time, they created an extraordinary musical experience.
With a performance history spanning almost two decades, Pearl Django endures as one of the most highly regarded Hot Club style groups working today. Although the band’s roots are firmly in the music made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stephan Grappelli, its extensive repertoire includes traditional jazz classics and original compositions.
