In Paris, in the 1930’s, Django Reinhardt emerged as one of the finest guitarists ever to play the instrument. Saskatoon's Gypsy Jazz trio, Sons of Django, pays homage to Django’s original stylings of “Le Jazz Hot," while adding their own contemporary touches to this popular genre. The trio recently attended the Northwest Djangofest on Whidbey Island in Washington State -- a gathering of Gypsy Jazz musicians and fans from all over North America. They've also played private events in Naramata, BC and Calgary.
Sons of Django features Lorne Deighton (rhythm guitar), Stephen Davis (lead guitar) and Emmett Fortoski (bass).
