As part of the Somers Point Business Association’s “April in Paris” celebration that is occurring April 7-9 in Somers Point the gypsy jazz group “Ameranouche” will be performing on April 7th at Clancy’s by the Bay, Maryland and Sunny Ave. starting at 7:30 p.m.
This event is underwritten in part by the South Jersey Jazz Society. “Ameranouche” has performed in this area a number of times to a,very enthusiastic audiences.
Gypsy jazz was very popular in Paris during the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s with one of the most noted performer being Django Reinhardt.
The award winning Ameranouche (pronounced uh-Mare-uh-noosh) plays a passionate style of music they call “Gypsy Flamenco Swing.” They are veterans of the Newport Jazz Festival, Djangofest Northwest, Muzikfest Bethlehem, PA and the National Press Club. The name is derived from two words: American and Manouche, the gypsy tribe of guitarist Django Reinhardt. The rip-roaring ensemble is a super force of hot acoustic Gypsy inspired music mixing Flamenco, Bebop and Jazz swing influences. Played on traditional French jazz guitars, the music is rhythmic, vigorous, and elegant. Whether they’re playing a musette waltz from 1930 or an Andalusian inspired original tune, Ameranouche’s Gypsy Flamenco Swing style is a fresh and highly enjoyable new sound for the 21st century.
Gypsy Flamenco Swing is about coming together and celebrating our shared humanity. Ameranouche is committed to connecting deeply with its audience and sharing joy and peace through its live shows and recorded albums.
This three day event will feature French theme menu items in various restaurants, French art exhibits, wine tasting, French language lesson, French film and much more. For more information call 233-1820, or visit aprilinparissp.weebly.com
