The Djangoners take their inspiration from Django Reinhardt and his famous Jazz band from late-1930s Paris & London –
“The Hot Club of France”
Today, Django Reinhardt’s music is enjoying a resurgence in popularity and The Djangoners are carrying on his legacy true to its tradition featuring Bobby Henrie on lead guitar, Eric Aceto on violin, Harry Aceto on "Manouche" rhythm guitar and Brian Williams - RIT SChool for American Crafts alum- on upright bass. These fine players have each been on the professional music scene for over 40 years playing in many different genres but they came together on this project with a common love of Django's music and a desire to perform it with the same enthusiasm and spirit as it was originally played in the 1930s. They've achieved that objective handsomely!
