After 18 years of playing Sundays at 9pm, Stéphane will now play from 8 to 9:30pm.
Changing things every 18 years should be good luck, we hope. Stéphane Wrembel
is probably the foremost interpreter of Django Reinhardt’s music in North America. Whether sticking to the French master’s arrangements, or taking the music into new territory, Wrembel has always treated Django like a serious composer rather the cliché paragon of swing and speed he has often been portrayed as.
As a composer, Stéphane has scored the theme song to Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" and scored his last film. He performed live for the 2012 Academy Awards, has headlined at Carnegie Hall and the the Lyon Opera House and has been called “a revelation” by Rolling Stone magazine.
While his playing falls into the general umbrella of Gypsy Swing his weekly sets also howcase his own compositions which owe as much to Django Reinhardt as they do Pink Floyd, Ravel or Middle Eastern music. Stephane is at barbes (almost) every Sunday.
