Event Description

The Victoria Django Festival is back!

Celebrating the opening of Hermann’s Jazz Club Upstairs Ballroom with a two stage festival including Romanian Violin virtuoso Lache Cercel and The Roma Swing Ensemble featuring George Feraru, Club Voltaire featuring Adam Dobres & Richard Moody and The Capital City Syncopators featuring Gene Hardy.

Featuring Roma Swing, Baltic, Tin Pan Alley and Depression Era Jazz, The Victoria Django Festival will transport you to the Roaring Twenties and the Dirty Thirties in the gorgeous, newly minted Upstairs(Ballroom Stage) and the Downstairs Jazz Club(Speakeasy Stage) at Hermann’s Jazz Club.
Presented by The Victoria Django Society and Caravan World Rhythms

Lache Cercel & The Roma Swing Ensemble
The flare and passion of traditional Eastern European melodies with swingin’ jazz harmonies… and a little Egyptian percussion for good measure…
Lache Cercel and his Roma Swing Ensemble represent the latest chapter in an important movement in Canadian World Music – elite musicians from around the world who settle in Canada and create music that incorporates their own traditions with influences they find surrounding them here.
Before leaving his homeland, Lache Cercel was one of Romania’s premier musicians. From a musical family, he trained at the Academy of Arts in Bucharest, became a soloist with the Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra and, in 1986, was awarded the “Artist of the People” Citation by the Romanian government.

The Capital City Syncopators
Crossing more boundaries than a rumrunner, The Capital City Syncopators is Victoria’s finest prohibition-era dance band. A delicious stew of trad jazz, western swing and 80’s favourites, this eccentric 5-piece will be sure to sweep you off your feet and onto the dance floor.

Club Voltaire
Featuring a starry lineup of well loved instrumentalists, Club Voltaire brings influences of Jug Band, Latin and Traditional Jazz to the Roma Swing genre. Featuring Richard Moody, Adam Dobres, Vincent Perreault, Reuben Weir & Oliver Swain.

**If you require dinner reservations, please book with Hermann's main room ahead of time!**
**Remember that seating is first come first serve, so if you have a room preference (main or upstairs) please arrive early!**
