This streaming only event will be followed by a an in-person only solo concert of Django l'impressionniste at 7pm and a full band concert of The Django Experiment at 9pm  

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 too often been portrayed as.
Stéphane penned the theme song to Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" and scored Allen's latest film, Rifkin’s Festival. He has performed live for the 2012 Academy Awards, has headlined at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall and the the Lyon Opera House and has been called “a revelation” by Rolling Stone magazine.
His acclaimed album, Django l'Impressionniste, is a transcription of the master's solo improvisations, which Wrembel essentially treats as a book of classical preludes
Stéphane has has released 6 albums under the moniker "The Django Experiment" and produces a yearly festival, Django a go go.
Stephane Wrembel has played (almost) every Sunday at Barbès for the past 18 years.
