DjangoVegas! returns to downtown Las Vegas Saturday, June 21, 2014 to celebrate the music of Django Reinhardt and other gypsy jazz musicians past and present. The concert will feature Robin Nolan, Icy Hot Club and the Hot Club of Las Vegas. Food and Django merchandise will be available for purchase.

The Robin Nolan Trio
Robin Nolan, one of the world’s best known and most admired gypsy jazz guitarists, has been lauded for his musical genius and sensibilities by Willie Nelson, Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, and the late George Harrison. Robin Nolan became one of Harrison’s favorite guitarists and was his ‘secret weapon’ at many a party thrown at his English country estate Friar Park.

While his inspiration lies in Gypsy Jazz, Latin and Hot Club de France, Robin has a decidedly contemporary feel and fires up his music with his own expressive compositions. Backed by his trio’s hypnotic rhythms, his rippling melodic ideas and solos set him apart from his contemporaries. Whether playing jazz standards, original compositions, or a nod at rock and pop music, Robin always delights his audiences with a show of special splendor and style.

The Robin Nolan Trio are a favorite with Jazz festivals and have played at some of the most prestigious musical events in some 25 countries around the world. 2014 will see them return to the Django Reinhardt Festival in France. They also have tours in the U.S.A., Canada, Israel and England scheduled.

Joined by his brother Kevin on rhythm guitar and Arnoud van den Berg on bass this power trio is taking the music of Django Reinhardt into the 21st century. robin@robinnolan.com
