Laguna Beach Live! is kicking off the New Year on the right note with the dynamic John Jorgenson Quintet on January 22.  Presented at the distinctive [seven-degrees] in an intimate cabaret setting, the concert offers string-driven swing in the style called “Gypsy Jazz created by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli in 1930’s Paris. The Quintet further enthralls the most discerning and the causal music fan with elements from Latin, Romanian, Classical, Rock and Greek music.

The John Jorgenson Quintet is the only American act to ever headline the prestigious Reinhardt Memorial Festival in France, and has been featured at other “Djangofests” in the US, UK, Germany and Canada. For the films Gattica and Head in the Clouds, Jorgenson was tapped to recreate Django’s music, and in the latter he even appeared on screen as Django with stars Charlize Theron and Penelope Cruz.

Concert is 6-8pm, doors open at 5pm. A full bar is available and dinner on a pre-sale basis. Tickets are $35 in advance; $55 with dinner; $40 at the door and can be purchased from www.lagunabeachlive.org. For more information 949 715 9713
