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!


Host: James Colvin

In 2010, Epicure Cafe opened its doors as an independently owned and family-run cafe, gallery, and music venue in Farifax, VA. Epicure offers delicious food, a tasteful beer and wine selection, coffee drinks, and an undying love and appreciation for the arts. Throughout the years, Epicure has become home to a growing family of young creatives in the DC area, and our open mic has become a warm stage to an incredibly creative local music scene. Hope to see you here soon!

Be here no later than 730pm to signup - in person only. All styles of music are welcome :) Our open mics are free, but you are required to drink or eat something.

Please note that Epicure has moved from its original location, just up the road on Lee Highway, across the street from Guitar Center, where "John's Place" used to be!
