The Djangophiles were formed in 2004 in Portland Oregon by David Stassens and play swing / jazz from the 1920's through modern day compositions.
Our main influence (of course) is our namesake...the great Belgian/French Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt.
Django Reinhardt has astounded and thrilled numerous generations of guitar players and jazz lovers with his amazing command of the guitar. Together with Stephane Grappeli they formed the famous “Hot club of France” in 1934 , and based on the Gypsy jazz guitar stylings of Django, a whole new style of Jazz was developed….called Le jazz hot .
The Djangophiles play as a revolving ensemble...Duo to quintet, and in keeping with the tradition of the music we primarily use acoustic instruments ,and use sound reinforcement only when necessary....We're Perfect for small gatherings or large events.
