"The Life and Music of Django Reinhardt" by Montana Manouche

In honor of Django Reinhardt’s 108th birthday, Montana Manouche is presenting a concert of his music, preceded by a presentation of his fascinating life story, on Wednesday, January 23, at 7:00 PM.

Django Reinhardt (1910-1953) was a Belgian-born Romani-French musician/composer who created the unique style of music known as Jazz Manouche, or Gypsy Jazz. Based in Paris, Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli, and the Hot Club of France were the most influential of the European WWII-era jazz ensembles. This joyous and emotive style of music is performed and enjoyed all over the world. The members of Bozeman-based Montana Manouche are lead guitarist Dave Sullivan, violinist Nancy Padilla, rhythm guitarist Ray Padilla, and bassist Mike Carey.

The presentation will begin at 7:00 PM, followed by a brief intermission. The concert portion of the evening will begin at about 7:30 PM. Free and open to the public. To learn more about the group, please visit
