Need Help(information) About Amsterdam Gypsy Jazz.

Post by ATi »

Hi all,
I'm now in Amsterdam over the 22 Aug.
Any good bands, gypsy jazz clubs/shows, jam sessions, cd-book shops etc somewhere in the city?

Please let me know..

Hi there, the only time I've been in Amsterdam was before I got back into Gypsy jazz and so wasn't looking for any places like these, but....

I did go into someplace for a beer and lo and behind there was a fantastic trio playing classic Django tunes and doing it really really well, so it's definitely there. I would suggest the place to go to ask is Palm guitars, home of all guitar things rare and wonderful.

Here,s the link to their site

Ps there's a brilliant open air market very close in Waterlooplein with a real varied range goodies on sale - old instruments, mad clothes, antiques and porn. Let us know if you find anywhere, it'd be good to know for future visits
