Presumed Suspended Due To Covid-19 Closures
April 9, 2020
We're assuming that most, if not all, of the non-virtual Open Mikes listed on this site are on hold for now. Rather than encourage anyone to go out for no good reason, we're marking all Open Mikes on-hold until we hear otherwise from the listing owners.
We will provide 2 sets of our standard Gypsy Jazz repertoire with an open jam after each set.
Musicians are welcome to come take part in the jams.
Gypsy Jazz, aka “Hot Club Jazz,” is best defined by the works of Django Rheinhardt and Stephane Grappelli and was prominent in late 30s early 40s in Europe. It features generally up tempo danceable rhythms with instrumentation including guitars, violin, upright bass, clarinet, and accordion. Vocalists are welcome as well!
So, bring your gypsy style to Epicure Cafe and jam with Swingology!
