Event Description

“Gypsy jazz for the 21st century!” - Montreal Gazette

The Nova Scotia jazz scene hasn’t produced anything hotter than Halifax’s award-winning Gypsophilia, a stellar sextet of amazing young musicians who came together in 2004. Although the original inspiration for the ensemble was the gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt, they soon added elements of tango, klezmer, funk, indie rock, New Orleans and bebop into the mix, creating a swinging hybrid that’s great to listen to and even more fun when you’re dancing. Their CDs, such as 2011’s "Constellation," are a blast, but it’s their sold-out live shows where these fun-loving virtuosos truly come into their own. It’s hard to exaggerate just how much excitement these guys will create out on the dance floor when they return to Victoria. Ross Burns guitar/percussion, Matt Myer trumpet/organ, Gina Burgess violin, Alec Frith guitar, Nick Wilkinson rhythm guitar and Adam Fine double bass
