TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE at Cactus Records! We hope you'll join us in celebrating the extraordinary life and music of Django Reinhardt, born in January, 1910. (Which just happens to be the same year the Story Mansion was built!) This year The Coyote Gypsies will kick off the celebration, playing a set of the European folk music that influenced the young Django. You'll hear lots of Django compositions and learn about his amazing life. And you're going to love the swing dance demonstration performed by two couples from the MSU Swing Cats!
