Renowned for the quality of their musicianship and as great entertainers, Van Django's variety show is a festive Christmas mix of nostalgic favourites, jazz standards, pop tunes, classical elements, and sing-alongs, plus a few surprises - all delivered in swinging gypsy jazz style. Folks of all ages can celebrate the season at this fun and festive yule-time show.
Your favourites are back - Van Django's violinist Cameron Wilson, guitarist Budge Schachte, guitarist/cellist Finn Manniche and bassist Brent Gubbels are joined for this special occasion by stellar vocalist L.J. Mounteney.
A huge success when they performed the show at the St James Hall at Christmas in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, the band returns to the Rogue this year! They will come laden with copies of their Christmas CD for those folks wishing to take memories of the concert home with them.
Van Django's music is punchy, driving and rhythmically inventive, combining a wealth of musical influences while maintaining strong roots in the gypsy jazz made famous by Django Reinhardt and the 1930's Quintet of the Hot Club of France.
On stage, "they effortlessly whip the audience into a joyful frenzy. Attending a Van Django concert is the most fun you can have sitting down with your clothes on." - Nick Lehr, Djangofest.
The perfect answer to the winter's chill is to come share some hot and swinging Christmas cheer with Van Django this year!
