About this Event

TUESDAY | April 21st, 2020 | 7:30pm | Live Music | Robin Nolan Gypsy Jazz Retreat Workshop | Tickets: $15 (**two drink minimum required with ticket purchase**)

Internationally acclaimed Gypsy Jazz guitarist, Robin Nolan and, “the US Ambassador of Gypsy Jazz,” John Jorgenson - America's leading exponent of Django Reinhardt's music as well as being known for his guitar work with the Desert Rose Band, The Hellecasters, Bob Dylan and Elton John to name a few, - will take the stage at Bogies on Tuesday, April 21st along with Nolan’s Gypsy Jazz Workshop Retreat Players in the culminating performance of Nolan’s four day Gypsy Jazz Retreat Workshop held in Westlake Village from April 18th-21st www.learngypsyjazzguitar.com/los-angeles-retreat-2020.

Robin Nolan is one of the world’s best known and most admired gypsy jazz guitarists and has been praised for his musical genius and creativity by Willie Nelson, Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, and the late George Harrison. Robin became one of George Harrison’s favorite guitarists and was his ‘secret weapon’ at many a party thrown at his English country estate Friar Park. Legendary in the Django Reinhardt world, Robin has headlined every major gypsy jazz festival across the globe and Nolan’s music is taking gypsy jazz into the 21st Century beyond Django Reinhardt and incorporating influences of The Beatles, Ravi Shankar and AC/DC.

John Jorgenson, known for his blistering guitar and mandolin licks and mastery of a broad musical palette, has earned a reputation as a world-class musician, as evidenced by his collaborations with Earl Scruggs, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bob Dylan and many others. While a member of the Desert Rose Band, Jorgenson won the Academy of Country Music’s “Guitarist of the Year” award two consecutive years. Touring with multiple musical configurations such as the John Jorgenson Quintet, the John Jorgenson Electric Band, the John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band and the Desert Rose Band, Jorgenson plays dates annually across the U.S. and Europe. 2010 marked the 100th birthday of the great gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. Since discovering Django in 1979, Jorgenson has become “the US Ambassador of Gypsy Jazz” which is quite an honor given the distinctly European slant of the music’s heritage. Over the years Jorgenson has continued to honor the legacy of Reinhardt by bringing his unique brand of Gypsy Jazz to the masses with his John Jorgenson Quintet. At performances of the John Jorgenson Quintet, audiences are awestruck by not only Jorgenson’s skillful guitar playing, but the solo clarinet and bouzouki as well. Djangobooks perfectly articulates, “If he comes around, don’t miss him. The show is golden. The music soars.”
