We are based in the Isle of Bute, off the west coast of Scotland and play gypsy jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France.
Django Reinhardt was born in 1910 and became world famous as the lead guitarist in the Hot Club Quintet, which also featured Stephane Grappelli on violin and Django’s brother Joseph Reinhardt on rhythm guitar.
Sadly Django died on 15th May 1953 at the age of only 43, thus depriving the music world of an innovative and creative genius. His music lives on and continues to influence and inspire thousands of guitarist worldwide.
