Montana Manouche

Montana Manouche began in 2012, when Bozeman bluegrass musicians Ray Padilla (rhythm guitar) and Nancy Padilla (violin) started getting together to play Gypsy Jazz tunes with Livingston jazz guitarist Dave Sullivan. Their casual "just for fun" jamming led to local gigs. They became passionate about playing the style, attending many Gypsy Jazz events and workshops. Now a quartet, with Bozeman jazz bassist Mike Carey adding his great groove to the group's swinging sound, Montana Manouche enjoys an increasingly active performing schedule, playing concerts, private events, and swing dances. They play a few original tunes, but their repertoire consists mainly of the compositions of Django Reinhardt and his American contemporaries.
