Django Shredders will perform their gypsy-style jazz to the Besemer Concert Hall in Nevada City Jan. 13.

“The Life and Times of Django Reinhardt,” performed by Alex Ciavarelli and Rudy Marquez, tells the story of the Belgian jazz guitarist, regarded as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, and the frenzy of musicians he influenced.

Marquez and Ciavarelli are young accomplished jazz guitarists who bring exuberant energy and virtuosity. The Django Shredders have held court in the deep talent pools at DjangoVegas and the San Diego Gypsy Jazz Festival.
