Outline: This weekend focuses on teaching the style of Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt, to violinists and guitarists. World class players/teachers in the style Tim Kliphuis (violin) and Reinier Voet (guitar) run the course which mixes workshops (up to 4 a day), an evening concert, guided and free jam sessions, camping and friendship at an idyllic location near the sea.

HyperHip Media Inc. is proud to be a sponsor of the 2010 Django in June Festival, June 15 to 20 in beautiful Northampton, Mass.
For those of you who haven't attended a DIJ yet, do yourself a favour and try to attend. Festival organizer, Andrew Lawrence has turned this event into the premier East-coast Django Festival. It's one of the most jamming friendly events you can attend. Each day is filled with workshops and the evenings are filled with concerts and jams.
This year's line-up looks great. Whether you're a guitarist, violinist or accordionist, there's something for us all!
• Joscho Stephan, guitar (Germany)
• Biel Ballester, guitar (Spain)
• Gustav Lundgren, guitar (Sweden)
• Aurelien Bouly, guitar (France; Tarne Spilari)
• Gonzalo Bergara, guitar (Argentina via California)
• Tim Kliphuis, violin (Holland)
• Evan Price, violin (Turtle Island Quartet; Hot Club of San Francisco)
• Jimie Masefield, mandolin (Vermont, Jazz Mandolin Project)
• Rob Reich, accordion (San Francisco; Gaucho)

Representing HyperHip Media this year will be the swinging Tim Kliphuis. In addition to being a great performer, Tim is also a great instructor. For those of you who are so inclined, TK jogs every morning. You can join him for some exercise then pick his musical brain in one of his workshops.

I'm very pleased to announce that the 2 Stochelo Rosenberg DVDs: In The Style of Stochelo Rosenberg and Gypsy Waltzes Featuring Stochelo Rosenberg are now available for purchase and are shipping.
The producer, Denis Chang and I, are very happy with the DVDs and hope that many of you will use them to further your Gypsy Jazz education. On a personal note I feel that the combination of Denis' teaching format, coupled with Stochelo's formidable chops and overall musicality should keep you busy for a long, long time.

Django in June 2009 was a big success. Once again Andrew Lawrence pulled off a great event with patience and style! Attendance was high and the concerts were SRO.
