DjangoFest NorthWest: Nuages & Hot Club of Troy

September 23, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, Langley          —

Nuages, a modern jazz Manouche ensemble inspired by Django Reinhardt, blends Manouche jazz with traditional American jazz, Brazilian samba, Argentinian tango, French chanson, and other incredible global sounds.  Listeners are treated to a warm and engaging journey of high-level musicianship with a range of artistic expression. Nuages has enjoyed over a decade of performance and recording.  They have performed twice at the Djangofest Northwest Festival, as well as several concerts and events throughout Northwest Washington.

The Hot Club of Troy is very happy to be returning to WICA’s Michael Nutt stage for DFNW 2023! Guitarist and eponymous group leader, Troy Chapman will be joined on stage by some of Whidbey’s (and the Pacific Northwest’s) most brilliant musicians, including: Grant Neubauer on piano, Keegan Harshman on bass, and Mickey Grimm on drums, and special guests. An absolutely beautiful and exciting afternoon of music, inspired by and honoring the immortal Django, lies in store for DjangoFest fans of all ages!
