Saturday, March 4, 2017 – Gypsy Jazz Trio: Ameranouche
We are extremely excited to have Ameranouche join us for an evening of hot gypsy jazz! This talented trio with 2 guitars and upright bass, play the style of music originated with Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club Quintet of France in the 1930’s. This quick-based style of acoustic swing has a passionate following with hot club ensembles in major cities throughout the world.
Richard Sheppard, Jack Soref, and Michael Harrist make up Ameranouche, and each are accomplished talents in their own right, performing on the world’s stages and playing with some of the biggest names in gypsy jazz. Together as Ameranouche, they perform 1930’s era musette and swing, as well as original compositions in the gypsy/flamenco style.
“Ameranouche had the audience from the opening number then proceeded to blow the room away. From Django Reinhardt classics to musette waltzes to hot, swinging original tunes, Ameranouche earned every ounce of the standing ovation that they received at the end of the night.” – Brett Hartenbach, FPFC Concert Series (March 2014)
This is going to be a really brilliant show. I cannot think of a better way to describe it. High energy, amazing dexterity, and tight rhythms will have you at the edge of your seat!
The seat price is a little higher for this show, due to the size of the group–it’s expensive to tour this far from home, and we really need to support them! Reservations are $18 and the doors open at 7pm, with the music starting at 8pm. We’ll put out some wine and lemonade along with a few treats, and you are welcome to bring something to share or just for yourself. We enjoy making these events very special, and the camaraderie during the evening makes it even more so. Please come join us for this very special show!
