Why you should see this show…

“Stephane Wrembel just might be the greatest acoustic guitarist alive.” –The Aquarian

“For North Americans, Stephane Wrembel represents the living face of gypsy jazz.” –New York Observer

“There’s plenty of Gypsy jazz guitarists who can play more notes at a faster tempos than Django Reinhardt, but few can truly master the inventiveness, melody and sheer swing. Stephane Wrembel is one of the rarities… Throughout, Wrembel’s playing is simply wonderful. He creates lead lines that snake through the original melodies, accenting them with dazzling riffs, and coming back to earth-and making it all make sense. That’s jazz!” –Vintage Guitar Magazine

“The mind-bendingly rapid melodies Stephane provided to the set’s final song were an exclamation point for an audience that was enthralled for 60 minutes of unforgettable music.” —Parklife DC
