Pearl Django will debut their new lineup, 7:30 p.m, Saturday, Jan. 30, featuring the amazing and wonderful Tim Lerch on guitar and the return of one of Pearl Django’s founding members, northwest icon Neil Andersson. The concert will feature a set of music with northwest vocalist extraordinaire Gail Pettis and will also include a tribute set devoted to their departing guitarist and colleague Troy Chapman.

With a performance history spanning more than two decades, Pearl Django endures as one of the most highly regarded Hot Club style groups working today. Although the band’s roots are firmly in the music made famous by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, its extensive repertoire includes traditional jazz classics and original compositions. Pearl Django has performed at festivals, dances and nightspots throughout the U.S. and abroad. They have played at the prestigious Festival Django Reinhardt in Samois sur Seine and have been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered.” The band’s signature style is marked by pristine and dexterous string work, colors of Bal Musette, the steady pulse of rhythm guitar and an unmistakable swing that delights audiences of all musical sensibilities. Throughout the years, Pearl Django has cultivated a devoted and enthusiastic following and they continue to play to packed houses wherever they perform.

All Seats are $22.50. Zech Hall Piano Bar opens one hour before the performance.
