The Stephane Wrembel Band is back on the road with two new recordings on Water Is Life Records, “The Django Experiment I and II.” Both recordings primarily feature The Stephane Wrembel Band’s own interpretation of the songs of legendary jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, as well as Wrembel’s original compositions, and those of other writers of the same vein of music. The recordings were released in conjunction with the Wrembel-produced Django A Gogo concert held at Carnegie Hall on March 3, 2017. The event received rave reviews and included guitar masters Al Di Meola, Larry Keel, Stochelo Rosenberg and other gifted musicians, all celebrating the music of Django Reinhardt.
Stephane Wrembel is best known for “Bistro Fada,” the theme song from the 2011 Woody Allen Oscar-winning film, “Midnight in Paris.” Subsequently, Wrembel was hand-selected by award winning composer/producer Hans Zimmer to perform at the 2012 Academy Awards as part of his “All Star Band.” Later that year, “Midnight in Paris” won a Grammy Award for “Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media”. Wrembel has contributed music to two other Allen films, a variety of commercials, and even helped Gentleman Shaver win a Clio Award for “Best Original Song Used in a Commercial”. He has toured around the world and is hugely popular in many countries including France, India and Nigeria. New York Observer recently said, "Stephane Wrembel represents the living face of Gypsy jazz."
The Stephane Wrembel Band includes long-time collaborators Thor Jensen (guitar), Ari Folman Cohen (bass) and Nick Anderson (drums).
