[August 8, 2022] ~ Critically-acclaimed Jazz guitarist Stephane Wrembel--most known for his original composition “Bistro Fada” from the Academy Award®-winning film, Midnight in Paris—is embarking on a N.E Tour in August of 2022—with long-time bandmates Josh Kaye (guitar), Ari Folman-Cohen (bass) and Nick Anderson (drums). Showcasing their unparalleled prowess on the stage, the quartet will be performing Wrembel’s original compositions, including music from Wrembel’s latest release, The Django Experiment VI--which embodies improvisation among long-time collaborators at its finest—as well as compositions by legendary jazz guitarist/composer, Django Reinhardt, and other select composers.

Listen!

Stephane Wrembel is a composer, teacher, and one of the most heralded guitarists in the world specializing in the style of Django Reinhardt. Wrembel - who learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside - has had a remarkable career, headlining shows worldwide while releasing 16 albums under his name and the nom de plume, The Django Experiment. In addition to “Bistro Fada,” the theme song for Midnight In Paris, his original composition “Big Brother” was featured in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Midnight In Paris won the Grammy Award® for Best Soundtrack, and Wrembel has hand-selected by Hans Zimmer to perform in an all-star ensemble at the 2012 Academy Awards®. Most recently, Wrembel recorded the entire score for Woody Allen’s upcoming film, Rifkin’s Fe-stival, which was released earlier this year in January 2022.


In October of 2019, Wrembel released the highly regarded Django L’Impressionniste, featuring 17 of Reinhardt’s early preludes for solo guitar, followed by a book of his transcriptions in April of 2021. He is the only guitarist who can perform this entire repertoire.


Wrembel recently wrapped another Django a Gogo Music Festival and Guitar Camp. Since 2003, Wrembel has brought together some of the finest musicians in the world to celebrate the Sinti guitar style at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall and The Town Hall. Django a Gogo celebrates its 20th Anniversary in 2023 and will bring together an all-star concert slated for Maplewood, N.J, and New York City.
