If not available, we’ll send you the updated seating chart showing seats that are available. Questions? Send them to us: dmf@delmarfoundation.org.

About John Jorgenson Quintet

John Jorgenson Quintet creates a unique musical experience that equally enthralls the most discerning and the casual music fan. The ensemble was originally formed in 2004 for the release of “Franco-American Swing”. The group’s style has been called “Gypsy Jazz” after the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris, but Jorgenson’s compositions draw in elements from myriad music genres.

The John Jorgenson Quintet is the only American act to ever headline the prestigious Django Reinhardt Memorial Festival in France, and has been featured at other “Djangofests” in the US, UK, Germany and Canada. For the films Gattica and Head in the Clouds Jorgenson was tapped to recreate Django’s music, and in the latter he even appeared onscreen as Django with stars Charlize Theron and Penelope Cruz.

The John Jorgenson Quintet Band current members playing along with John Jorgenson are: Jason Anick, a prodigious jazz violinist and one of the youngest instructors at Boston’s Berklee College of Music; Max O’Rourke, a composer, arranger, and jazz guitarist; Simon Planting, Autch bassist well-known and respected in the gypsy-jazz community; and Rick Reed, a veteran percussionist, renowned for his intricate brushwork and swinging drive.
