Gadjo Guitars bring their unique interpretation of the gypsy jazz sound to Django Bar, Marrickville on Sunday September 18th, showcasing their latest album "Turned On, Tuned In And Dropped Out". Recorded throughout 2015, the trio crafted and refined their original material combining driving rhythms, joyful melodic sensibilities and dynamic interplay the end result is a vibrant energised collection of songs. The album is the group's first complete collection of original material and departs slighty from the traditional gypsy jazz guitar style by embracing rock, blues and Brazilian musical influences and broadens their sonic pallet by expriementing with flat top acoustic guitars as well as 6 and 7 string classical guitars. The album is also the first to feature special guest perfromances by vionlists George Washingmachine, Ian Cooper and Etinne Bizjak.

Founding member Cameron Jones (guitar) explains that the word "gadjo" is in fact a gypsy term for a non- gypsy. All three members are indeed non-gypsies but you couldn't tell from their playing. Dedicated to the art of gypsy swing, their repertoire and skills are among the best you will see within this genre in the country today.

Gadjo Guitars consists of Cameron Jones (guitar), Nigel Date (guitar) and Stan Valecos (bass). As a collective they have been playing together for over 5 years but as individuals their experience in the jazz scene clocks up around 30 years. It is a true delight to witness such experienced musicians in full "gypsy swing" so-to-speak. The improvisation and interplay between the musicians makes for a truly memorable show. When asked to describe the music, Nigel Date offered: "It's acoustic music, it's energetic, it's largely improvised. The music is presented in its most organic form which creates space between the musicians to exchange of musical ideas.
