Montana Manouche will present its fifth annual concert celebrating the music of Django Reinhardt at The Attic. 

The event will take place at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26. 

Born in 1910, Django Reinhardt created the genre of music known as Jazz Manouche (or Gypsy Jazz), a news release on the event said. With violinist Stéphane Grappelli, Reinhardt formed the Paris-based Quintette du Hot Club de France in 1934. The group was among the first to play jazz that featured the guitar and violin as lead instruments. Reinhardt was a prolific composer, and attendees at The Attic concert will hear many of his remarkable and enduring tunes. Dancers are welcome. 

This year’s concert features Austin, Texas-based hot jazz and Western swing trio Hot Club of Cowtown. The trio writes its own original songs, and reinterprets everything from hoedowns to American songbook standards in its own, original style, the release said.

Tickets are $17 in advance, and are available at Whiskey Creek and online at www.theatticmontana.com.
