Have you heard of Pearl Django? This awesome Gypsy Jazz Band includes one of our very own! Ryan Hoffman!
Pearl Django began in 1994 in Tacoma, Washington. The group’s desire is to mesh the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli with American swing music. Based in Seattle, they have played around the United States, as well as in France and Iceland.
Here is one of their songs “Endless Fields of Green.” I fell in love with there music, and I think you will too!
Here’s the latest news/events from Pearl Django below! Could you make some time in your schedule to check out this amazing band?
Summer has officially begun and we are celebrating the occasion with a busy, busy month of shows. There are many great opportunities to hear the band live in Seattle, on the Eastside, up in Blaine and out on the peninsula.Plus, Eleven is selling well and is getting airplay all around the country, and that’s reason to celebrate, too!
