    I met a couple from Richmond at DiJ, a husband and wife duo. He's a good player, she's a wonderful singer and amazingly sings everything in original keys while sounding great. They make delicious cocktails, whimsically named like Mango Reinhardt. The only problem is I don't remember their names. I think they call their band something like Cocktail Sticks.
    @Wim Glenn you were jamming together, do you remember their names?

    Hey, I live in Richmond VA and would be happy to get together. We have a couple active GJ groups here (Gypsy Roots and Django Tango), but no Djams that I know of. I do know most of the local GJ players though.

    I think that bassist Wells Gordon is in Richmond. Most likely he'd know everything going on in gypsy jazz in the area.

    @Stamos666 - While not Richmond - You should certainly reach out to Rick Olaverez - in Charlottesville. Great player, super nice guy, Goes to Samois a lot - and has been in this music almost as long as me . . lol!

    And depending on your travel distance - some folks in the NC area might be worth hitting up (Scot Wise- who got me into the music way back in the way back . . )
