More about the band
The band was founded in June 2014, inspired by Django Reinhardt’s music. They have been playing jazz manouche since 2011, when they had their first experience with gypsy jazz music at Samois-Sur-Seine Django Festival, in France. The environment of Samois and the musicians they met were the primary motivation to play gypsy jazz.
The French Jazz Acoustic Band has performed at Le Quecumbar Hot Club of London, Megaron Athens Concert Hall, Technopolis Gazi Athens, Gazarte Cultural Hub Athens and Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center Athens. They have also participated in the Petit Paris d' Athènes Festival and at the Django Festival of Athens several times.
The band has appeared on national Greek TV and on national and local radio stations, promoting gypsy jazz music and original compositions. They also accomplished a European Tour in May 2018 in Italy, the UK, Belgium, Austria and the Czech Republic.
