The Djangologists were formed in 2014 by Chris Higgins and Hamish Reid. They are a quintet that performs music inspired by Django Reinhardt while adding their own twist! (clarinet/saxophone, trombone, 2x guitar, double bass)
When The Djangologists perform you'll hear blistering fast tunes to velvety ballads and everything in between. They’re always having fun on stage and want the audience to be a part of the experience. Whether you dance, sing or just smile it doesn’t matter!
The Gypsy Jazz Project (GJP) is a Canberra-based quartet playing 1930s Parisian “hot club” jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt. Featuring Bruce Rose and Sverre Molland on guitars, Anthony Irving on double bass and Steve Rouch on clarinet and vocals, the GJP plays hot string swing jazz that will bring a smile to your dial and get your hands clapping while your feet tapping. The band plays regularly at jazz venues in Canberra and neighbouring regions, as well as festivals, private functions, weddings, vineyards and cocktail parties.
