About this event

LACA to host Swing Guitars of Cologne Thursday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.

Swing Guitars Cologne is a gypsy jazz trio that comes from the tradition of Django Reinhardt, but has developed its own style and brings the music into the present day. Sven Jungbeck, among other things rhythm guitarist in the Joscho Stephan Trio, and Frederik Gebhardt founded the trio together with the Cologne bassist Christoph Bormann in early 2020 after a joint CD production.The trio is particularly characterized by the fact that there is no clear separation between rhythm guitar and solo guitar, as is usual in music. Instead, both musicians playfully switch back and forth between roles. This results in a wide range of possibilities for musical interaction. In addition to traditional gypsy music, the trio also brings sounds from Latin, pop and temporary jazz to their stage program.

The evening's performance will be opened by the Ludington based band Third Coast Swing w/ Ella Jarvis.

Third Coast Swing specializes in the styles of Gypsy Swing, Gypsy Bossa, Bolero, French Musette & more. Think Louis Armstrong with a French accent.

Third Coast was founded by guitarist Stephen Plummer whose love for this music led him to reach out to study and play with musician & Gypsy Jazz educator Denis Chang, and later the Manouche Guitarist Favino Lorrier who hails from the legendary Lorrier & Schmitt family. A family of Gypsy musicians in France who are direct disciples of Django’s music.
