Le Not-So-Hot Klub du Denton - Django Reinhardt inspired Gypsy Jazz

Date: Sept 10, 2022
Time: 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Chandor Gardens Foundation Inc. is pleased to present Le Not-So-Hot Klub du Denton, performing a Django Reinhardt inspired Gypsy Jazz concert, in the courtyard of the beautiful Chandor Gardens, Weatherford, Texas on September 10, 2022.

Who was Django Reinhardt? - The legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt (1910-1953) is the father of Gypsy Jazz, a musical style he developed and made famous in the 1930’s & 1940’s in France. His music is notable for its distinctive, fast-paced rhythmic guitar strumming - known as "la pompe" (which translates as “the pump”). He is regarded as one of the greatest guitar players of all time. Reinhardt formed the Quintette du Hot Club de France, which he fronted with violinist Stéphane Grapelli (known as the “grandfather of jazz violinists”), in Paris, France. Reinhardt was also a prolific composer and many of his tunes have gone on to become Gypsy Jazz standards: Minor Swing, Swing 42, Djangology, Brick Top, Daphné, Belleville, and Nuages. Django Reinhardt died from a brain haemorrhage at the age of just 43 in 1953.

Le Not-So-Hot Klub du Denton was founded in 2004 in Denton, Texas, as a "loose collective of musicians wanting to preserve, protect, and defend the right to play Django Reinhardt style music together". This incredibly talented group of musicians specializes in acoustically-oriented, high energy, classic Gypsy Jazz swing ---namely anything Django Reinhardt would've played---and anything that is FUN music!

The five artists performing in the band Le Not-So-Hot Klub du Denton for this concert are:

  • Thad Bonduris - Guitar/vocals & leader
  • Anthony Nagid - Accordion
  • Leoncarlo Canlas – Violin
  • Lynn Seaton – Double Bass
  • Frank Heidlberger - Clarinet

Tickets - $30 (wine and bottled water included in ticket price)

Guests are welcome to bring their own snacks or even a picnic for this outdoor concert.

Seating will be provided and set up in the courtyard

Doors open at 6:30 P.M.

Show starts at 7:00 P.M.

Note: If the weather is inclement the concert will be moved indoors to the Great Room of the Chandor mansion.
