Cool Yule Christmas tour!

This year marks my 6th year (wow!) playing with the fabulous band Van Django! We’ll be at two new fantastic venues – the internationally renowned Blue Frog Studios in Whiterock on Thursday Dec 5 and the Dream Cafe in Penticton on Friday Dec 20 and Saturday Dec 21. Our Blue Frog show will also be lived streamed! And of course our wonderful Christmas house gig at St. James Hall for the Rogue Folk Club’s annual Christmas party!

About Van Django and Cool Yule

Van Django’s music is punchy, driving and rhythmically inventive, combining a wealth of musical influences while maintaining strong roots in the gypsy jazz made famous by Django Reinhardt and the 1930’s Quintet of the Hot Club of France. On stage, “they effortlessly whip the audience into a joyful frenzy”.

Renowned both for the quality of their musicianship and as great entertainers, Van Django’s Cool Yule is a merry Christmas mix of nostalgic favourites, jazz standards, sing- alongs, pop tunes, some classical touches, and a few surprises – all delivered in their swinging gypsy jazz style. You’ll hear everything from the evocative I’ll Be Home for Christmas to Let it Snow, Silent Night and Silver Bells to Christmas Time is Here, a bit of Beethoven, and of course all with a touch of Django Reinhardt’s style – something every ear, heart, and tapping foot will enjoy.
