On this evening, the night after the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris, the French band Dorado Schmitt and the Django Festival All-Stars appeared at Regattabar. They began the show with a moment of silence for the victims and also had a candle of remembrance burning on stage.
Dedicated to the gypsy jazz stylings of Django Reinhardt, Dorado bears a resemblance to Django (could it be what looks to be a false mustache that does it?).
I love Django Reinhardt and gypsy jazz, and was excited to see this Django a Go Go show at Regattabar. I was not prepared, however, to be as amazed as I was by the immense talent on the stage this evening. Django a Go Go is a project of Stephane Wremble, a French (although soon-to-be American) musician who fell in love with Reinhardt’s music before he came to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music.
