Jazz at the M.A.G. will be a "Red Carpet" event featuring musician Stephane Wrembel and his quartet to perform some of their jazz hits that have been premiered in movies such as "Midnight in Paris" and "Vicky Christina Barcelona" . While topping the the charts at #1 with the most downloaded song on itunes, this group will be sure to keep the crowd on their feet. Non alcohol beverages, alcohol beverages, and food will be available for purchase during this event.
One could call Stephane Wrembel a Gypsy, a World Traveler, for the music he plays and his lifestyle are expressive of the Gypsy way of life. Born in Paris, and raised in Fontainbleu (home of Impressionism and the music of Django Reinhardt), Stephane began classical training at the age of four. His life took a decisive turn in his late teens when he first discovered Django’s music and the Gypsies. He spent the next ten years of his life learning, playing and expanding this tradition. This intense work gave him his technique, but the time he spent playing around campfires and trailers gave him his soul.
After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music with studies in Contemporary Jazz, Indian, African and Middle Eastern music, his life took another turn when he moved to New York City. Like New York, Stephane is aways in motion- always searching and never stopping in his quest to create a new sound.
