Featuring some of London’s’ most highly regarded jazz musicians, the Actors’ Church are delighted to be presenting three concerts to celebrate the considerable influence the European jazz capital has had on the global music industry. 

John Etheridge presents his world-famous tribute to his mentor Stephane Grapelli, Mike Guy brings a celebration of the music of arguably the world’s greatest accordionist Richard Galliano and the renowned ‘London Django Collective’ explore the legacy of Django Reinhardt, by performing some of their impressive original catalogue.

The Festival of French Jazz is an opportunity to hear this highly unique, joyous, evocative music within the Grade 1 listed, 400-year-old acoustics of the ‘Actors’ Church’ – so called because of the church’s close historic association with the theatre community of London’s west end.

The bar will be open throughout the performance, so please do grab a drink at any time.

London Django Collective

Biographies

London Django Collective

The Band

The London Django Collective is a collaboration between several of London’s foremost musicians of the style commonly known as ‘Gypsy Jazz’. They regularly sell-out Ronnie Scott’s and, between them, have toured the world! The collective was born out of the desire to create a local and innovate forum for musicians influenced by the musical legacy of Django Reinhardt. Whilst their roots are based in the classic Django sound, their own innovation and creative flare has led them to compose distinctly contemporary music which sits beside the very best of London’s thriving jazz scene.

In 2019 they released five two-track EP’s, each led by a member of the collective. These EP’s showcased their individual take on the vibrant European style of jazz. Gypsy jazz has always had a place in the hearts of revivalists and traditionalists, but the London Django Collective have a vision of true progression for the style, whilst nodding to the great musicians who have come before them.
