Legendary jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt was born 100 years ago, but his music still captivates us. So much so, in fact, that the folks at Boardwalk Bistro, 4011 Broadway, are celebrating Tuesday evening with a special concert and a French-infused menu.
Hank Harrison's Hot Club Quintet will perform. Jazz guitarist Olivier Giraud will be joined by guitarists Polly Harrison and Keith Kimbell as well as bassist Mary Ann Cornelius and Hank Harrison on violin and historical commentary about Reinhardt's life and times.
French food and wine will be offered for dining while the music is performed from 7 to 9 p.m.
For reservations, call 210-824-0100.
