Gypsy Jazz meets the Great American Songbook
Hailing from Los Angeles, The Black Market Trust are a charismatic pop/vocal jazz band who combine the sounds of legendary American crooners and vocal groups with the fire and energy of Gypsy Jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. Consisting of five world-class musicians who have traveled the globe recording and performing on the world’s biggest stages and with music’s most renowned artists, The Black Market Trust features material from the Great American Songbook – ranging from Sinatra to the Beach Boys to the Beatles – and infuses it with Django’s romantic and virtuosic flavor. Add some intricate vocal harmonies and a dash of Rat Pack-style comedy, it’s clear to audiences why The Black Market Trust have quickly earned a reputation as one of the premier live acts performing in music today. Don’t miss this fantastic night of music that melds the old world sounds of a gypsy campfire with new world vibes of a slick metropolitan nightclub!
