The Speakeasy is back for another romping good time in Cumberland. We here at Speakeasy world headquarters are bringing you another round of fun to dress up and get down in the historic Waverley Hotel. This round we have special guests Django's Jewels, a great local Gypsy style swing band to help you cut up the rug. We also have a master of the Vintage Remix scene from the UK - Dephicit - who has been bringing a big future bass vibe to the Vintage Remix scene across the festival circuit for the last 6 years. Yours truly, DJ Eliazar, will be rounding out the crew to bring my own positive take on digging the old to build the new once again. Tickets are $10 in advance, so get yours soon.
On a mission to capture the sound of Django Reinhardt's Gypsy jazz of the 30’s and 40’s, DJANGO'S Jewels ARE THE NEXT GENERATION OF GYPSY SWING IN WESTERN CANADA.
THE JEWELS swing hard and fast, with energy and lots of feels. This string band plays with traditional Gypsy acoustic guitars, while violin, upright bass and the ODD SWING drummer completes the Jewels' unique vintage sound. The raw swing of Django's Jewels packs a serious bite not heard often in the biz today.
Fresh off the boat from the UK, Dephicit is bringing the best in funk, swing and Drum and Bass. With a splash of turntablism it becomes a show that is sure to get the knees up and bassface out.
Eliazar has been at the forefront of the Electro Swing and Vintage Remix scene in North America for over 8 years. Starting the Speakeasy series in a loft in Montreal in 2010, it has grown to an international series of events on 4 continents combining the sounds of the flapper era with the technology of the future. The Roaring 2020's are only a few years away, so warm up in style when this troubadour of smiles and silliness gets you dancing. You can download any of the compilation series for free from the link below, as well as over 30 DJ mixes of the sound to get you amped for the show to come. Now residing on Denmanistan this city boy has converted to the speed of island life and has landed in a state of contentment he is always happy to share through his music.
