Uptown Row Django Jazz Fest hits Minneapolis tomorrow

The Uptown Row Django Jazz Fest is set for tomorrow in Minneapolis, MN. The festival features hard-swinging “hot club” music, best described as a mix of Gypsy music, French café music and American swing music, created by Django Reinhardt (pictured) with origins in the performance venues of 1930s Paris.

The style has a dedicated group of fans and practitioners across the world. This is the first time Minneapolis will experience a festival of this nature, featuring notable artists such as The Hot Club of Sweden with Connie Evingson, Clearwater Hot Club, Parisota Hot Club and the Twin Cities Hot Club.
