This footage was filmed at the "Django à la Créole" CD release concert held at Le Quecumbar in London in August 2008. Django à la Créole is comprised of Evan Christopher on clarinet, Dave Kelbie on acoustic guitar, Dave Blenkhorn on electric guitar, and Sebastien Girardot on double bass.
In the aftermath of the Katrina disaster in 2005 New Orleans clarinetist Evan Christopher temporarily relocated to Paris, focusing his efforts on performing and sharing the music for which his home town is best known. He organized a band calling themselves "Django à la Créole" debuting in August 2007 with concerts in Great Britain and Norway. Evan has since moved back to New Orleans as of December 2010 and continues on his mission to keep his city and its rich musical heritage going strong.
