ABOUT

SWING MANOUCHE
DENVER, CO
Come join us for Boulder & Denver Colorado’s best gypsy jazz community jams! We are a group of musicians who get together at least once a month to jam and celebrate the music of Django Reinhardt. Bring your axe. Bring a friend. Spread the word. All levels welcome. Come just to listen, to share a drinkwith friends, or to play. This is for Manouche and swing style guitar players as well as the other instruments including violin, mandolin, clarinet, accordion, saxophone and stand-up bass. All players with some experience are invited and all are welcome to play in the “back-row” or to enjoy as listeners. This website was created not only to show scheduled jams, but to also be a resource for anyone who is just getting into gypsy jazz and needs to know how to prepare for a jam in this genre. If you are new to gypsy jazz, we recommend downloading the Django Fakebook sheet music from the link further down the website and familiarizing yourself with the Spotify playlist of gypsy jazz standards we embedded on this website. Boulder & Denver have burgeoning Gypsy Jazz scenes and we hope that you can come be a part of it!
