Jazz and swing at Zia’s

By From page B8 | March 15, 2013

Jazz-Gitan-1 (2)The acoustic jazz trio Jazz Gitan is appearing at Zia’s, 312 Main St. in Placerville, on Saturday, March 16 from 7 to 9 p.m.

The group is an acoustic jazz trio that carries on the tradition of gypsy swing created by Django Reinhardt together with Stephane Grappelli during their domination of the Paris jazz scene in the 1930s.

The music of Jazz Gitan is the swinging jazz of the ’30s and ’40s, plus a cross-section of songs from the modern Gypsy jazz repertoire. It includes latin, blues and original styles combined to create a unique foot tapping and high energy Parisian influenced experience.

The band has performed for all types of venues, events and festivals both regionally and locally and assuredly provides exciting, engaging music for all to enjoy.

Drop in for good music, good friends and a fun atmosphere.

There is no cover charge with a purchase from Zia’s menu of treats. Beer and wine are also offered, as well as incredible coffees and desserts.

For more information call 530-642-9427.
