Club Django Toronto has been active on the Canadian Jazz scene for over 18 years and is Toronto’s longest-running, gypsy swing band. They are past nominees for Best Acoustic Group at the National Jazz Awards, and they have played Montreal Jazz Festival and TD Toronto Jazz Festival. Last year they performed at the first annual Grand River Arts Festival at Glenhyrst.

Gypsy jazz (also known as gypsy swing or hot club jazz) is a style of jazz music often said to have been started by guitarist Jean “Django” Reinhardt in the 1930s. Django was foremost among a group of Romani guitarists working in and around Paris in the 1930s through the 1950s. He was noted for combining a dark, chromatic Gypsy flavor with the swing articulation of the period. This combination is critical to this style of jazz. In addition to this, his approach continues to form the basis for contemporary Gypsy jazz guitar. Reinhardt’s most famous group, the Quintette du Hot Club de France, also brought fame to jazz violinist Stéphane Grappelli.
