Celebrating Django’s music

Posted on May 7th, 2008 by

I found this article  online this morning when I came into work and thought it was definitely worth sharing. It’s all about Django Reinhardt, his music, his origins, and how he lived his life. If you’ve never listened to or heard a Django song, you are really missing something. His music is quite upbeat and “plucky” as they reference in this article. I’m such a huge fan of 30’s hot jazz… literally inspires me to do things on the floor style wise that I wouldn’t otherwise do. And Django’s music falls smack dab in the middle of that category (30’s hot jazz) for me. So take a few minutes when you have time and check out some of his music  (iTunes link) to see what you’ve been missing!

“Rob and Dawn are the driving force for keeping swing dancing alive in this city. They treat all their students with encouragement and with the true desire to help them succeed. Not only that but they themselves are great perfomers. When they break out in dance at one of their twice monthly dances, everyone stops what they are doing to watch. Nobody comes close to matching their passion and desire for keeping the swing dance movement alive.”
