8:30pm Stephane Wrembel
This virtuoso guitarist from France has truly just begun to make his mark as one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music. Mr. Wrembel has built his reputation as a stylist in the mode of iconic French Sinti guitarist Django Reinhardt and has been called “a revelation” by Rolling Stone. Woody Allen recruited him to score the theme for his Best Picture Oscar Nominated smash film Midnight in Paris, and he performed the irresistibly catchy song live during the 2012 Academy Awards.
This year marks the release of his new album The Django Experiment IV, the fourth in a series of recordings done in tribute to Reinhardt.
Stephane is accompanied by his long-time collaborators Thor Jensen (guitar), Ari Folman-Cohen (bass) and Nick Anderson (drums).
