I just saw some Stephane Wrembel dates for a Djangofest NYC in April. Does anyone know the details of the festival? I've tried the web and found one date in a club. It seems like it might last a few days though.

Thanks!

    from Joel Beaver at the yahoo group:

    I am forwarding to you all this announcement from Stephane Wrembel regarding the
    upcoming Djangofest, New York in April.

    Joel


    Hi,

    Here we go, we, musicians, finally decided to organise the first annual
    Djangofest NY. A Djangofest has to have at least 4 or 5 worldclass Gypsy Jazz
    artists, various venues, Workshops, Jam sessions. Djangofest is a Trademark of
    Nick Lehr, the organiser of the first Djangofest, Djangofest NW in Seattle. He
    is very strict on the quality criterias, and we passed the test.
    There is a Django Reinhardt Festival every year at Birdland, that I encourage
    everybody to go to. Djangofest is going to be slightly different. More like a
    bluegrass type of festival, but with 100% of Django's music.
    Here is the program :

    I know this may seem like a crazy request but I am going to Djangofest NY enroute from Vermont to the Dominican Republic. I don't want to take my guitar to the Dominican Republic because we are not coming back through NY which would make picking it up difficult. Does anyone have a guitar that they could lend me for the workshops on Saturday? I am very conscientious and would take exceptional care of any instrument that is in my care. I can give you references as such if needed.

    Thanks,

    Jared
