Pearl Django’s music reaches across the divides of taste to a variety of audiences. The band’s fervent followers include fans of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, guitar enthusiasts (and guitarists); lovers of string music, including bluegrass devotees; world-music fans drawn to French and Gypsy accents; and jazz buffs and aficionados of the new swing music.
Huddleston McKenzie & Associates PLLC CPAs are co-sponsors of the Jan. 11 performance.
