The music pioneered by gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and his partner in swing, violinist Stephane Grappelli, is still utter bliss in the esteemed hands of Tacoma’s Pearl Django. With a continuously fresh and entrancing sound, bands like Pearl Django rejuvenate a love for “gypsy swing,” a style that was once the height of sophistication.
They will perform at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 25, at the Sudden Valley Dance Barn, 8 Barn View Road, gate 2. Tickets are $20; call 360-671-1709 for reservations. Tickets will also be available at the door.
Pearl Django will also perform at 7 that evening at Bellewood Acres, 6140 Guide Meridian, south of Lynden, as part of the Apple Blossom and Honey Bee Festival. Admission is $15; reserve tickets at 360-318-7720 or bellewoodfarms.com.
