DjangoVegas! is coming back to downtown Las Vegas on Saturday, June 18. The gypsy jazz event celebrates the music of Django Reinhardt and other jazz musicians past and present.
The concert will feature the Frank Vignola Trio, whose bandleader was the guitarist of choice for many of the world's top musicians, including Ringo Starr, Madonna, and Les Paul. The New York Times called him "one of the brightest... stars of the guitar."
Also included in the lineup is the Rhythm Future Quartet, Hot House West, and The Hot Club of Las Vegas. Each group will perform virtuoso arrangements of gypsy jazz standards and a variety of original compositions.  
The concert begins at 6 p.m. with cocktail service and pre-concert entertainment starting at 5 p.m. at the Historic Fifth Street School Auditorium, located at 401 S. Fourth St. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
