After a solid 18 months of planning, my group Babik will be performing the music of Django Reinhardt with a full orchestra.
We have enlisted the help of arranger Brent Havens, who has created and arranged the wildly popular orchestral programs for the music of The Doors, Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd, and The Eagles.
The show will take place on March 8th at Kleinhans Music Hall in Buffalo New York, with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Tickets are nearly sold out, but we hope to do another full length program here in 2009.
I know there are only a handful of you that are close enough to make the trip, but we are looking to do this in as many other areas as possible, so please send your ideas if you're inclined.
