A gypsy-jazz lineup includes Alfonso Ponticelli & Swing Gitan and the Gipsy Stringz Quartet from 2:00-6:00PM!
Alfonso Ponticelli & Swing Gitan is Chicago’s premier gypsy-jazz band.
The group plays the music of Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt with Balkan and Flamenco influenced melodies and rhythms — foot-tappin’ and hand-clappin’ Gypsy and swing. A blend of the jubilant swing of early jazz with the feisty passion of gypsy music and a strong dose of virtuosic spontaneous co-arranging.
“Swing Gitan was playing at full force – powered by Ponticelli’s unstoppable chordal backbeats – the art of gypsy jazz sounded bracingly fresh and contemporary” Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
