Van Django Cool Yule is the perfect answer to winter chill, come enjoy some hot and swinging family-friendly Christmas cheer!
Van Django, Vancouver’s hottest swing string quartet, bring their sizzling hot Gypsy Jazz Christmas show to the Dream Cafe this December! Joining Van Django’s violinist Cameron Wilson, guitarist Budge Schachte, guitarist/cellist Finn Manniche and bassist Brent Gubbels is stellar vocalist L.J. Mounteney.
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”.
Renowned both for the quality of their musicianship and as great entertainers, Van Django’s Cool Yule is a merry Christmas mix of nostalgic favourites, jazz standards, sing- alongs,pop tunes, some classical touches, and a few surprises – all delivered in their swinging gypsy jazz style. You’ll hear everything from the evocative I’ll Be Home for Christmas to Let it Snow, Silent Night and Silver Bells to Christmas Time is Here, a bit of Beethoven, and of course all with a touch of Django Reinhardt’s style – something every ear, heart, and tapping foot will enjoy.
“Van Django tosses off jaw-dropping technical licks with effortless ease, but above all, they entertain hugely, with every bar of every tune – tried and true or keenly original.” -Jurgen Goethe, Host, CBC Disc Drive Canada
