In 1995, in Toronto, a group of Django Reinhardt's fans got together for the sheer enjoyment of playing the music of the Quintet of the Hot Club of France. In time, a nucleus of these dedicated musicians decided to perform publicly and so the Club Django Sextet of Toronto was born. They have held a monthly residency here at The Rex since the turn of the decade, molding their shows into a tight ensemble performance of gypsy-swing joy.
Personnel: Andre Seguinot (Rhythm Guitar), John Farrell (Lead Guitar), Tony Oldland (Rhythm Guitar), Rodion Boshoer (Violin), Gerry Duligal (Piano/Accordion) & Abbey Sholzberg (Bass).
