Award-winning guitarist Stephane Wrembel, specialized in the Django Reinhardt style, will perform at the Sportsmen's Tavern
, 326 Amherst St., Buffalo, on Saturday, Nov. 10.
Wrembel is touring in support of "The Django Experiment III." The album released on Jan. 23 to commemorate the 108th anniversary of the birth of Reinhardt, who is widely considered one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century. "The Django Experiment III" was the follow up to Wrembel's acclaimed "The Django Experiment I" and "The Django Experiment II," which released in March 2017 in conjunction with the Wrembel-produced "Django A Gogo
" at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
Wrembel is most known for his Grammy Award-winning composition "Bistro Fada," the theme song from the 2011 Woody Allen Oscar Award-winning movie, "Midnight In Paris" (2012 Grammy Award winner for best soundtrack). Subsequently, Wrembel was hand-selected by award-winning composer/producer Hans Zimmer to perform at the 2012 Academy Awards as part of his "All Star Band." Wrembel has contributed music to two other Allen films, commercials, and TV. He has both a Clio Award and Grammy Award under his belt.
Wrembel's band includes long-time collaborators Thor Jensen (guitar), Ari Folman- Cohen (bass) and Nick Anderson (drums). For more information: www.stephanewrembel.com.
