Eric Vanderbilt-Mathews, Ranger Sciacca & Patrick Brooks

October 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Eric, Ranger and Patrick all hot young musical talent that have strong connections to the music and style of Django Reinhardt–have put together a special show of Django style music in our intimate cabaret room!

A Whidbey native, Eric Vanderbilt-Mathews began playing violin at age four, switched to piano a year later, and then picked up clarinet and saxophone in middle school, which have been his focus since. In 2016, Eric had his first chance to perform at Djangofest NW as a sideman with Ranger and the Re-Arrangers and the Hot Club of Troy. For the past two years he was asked to perform as a leader, assembling an all star band of epic players from across the continent.

Ranger Sciacca (of Ranger and the Re-Arrangers) began playing violin at the age of six. He divided his studies between old-time fiddle and classical violin until a chance encounter with a CD of violin jazz ignited Ranger’s interest in the music of Joe Venuti, Stuff Smith, Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt. Ranger’s playing draws from all the genres he has studied, and, according to one reviewer, “features frantic staccato runs and an overall sense of tone that reveals many shades and moods.”

Patrick Brooks grew up in Seattle, studying classical and jazz guitar from grade school through college. He has been playing Django’s music ever since discovering Seattle’s vibrant gypsy jazz scene and is a member of Silk Road Swing. Patrick plays with a lyrical fluidity that tells you immediately that he is a masterful improviser–Patrick’s phrases each have a unique genesis.

Pay-what-you-will admission.
