part was due to the band.  If you ever need a reference, let us know and thanks again for an amazing time!

"Great Concert last night! You guys swung Ford Hall to the moon!"  - Alice Saltonstall,  March 2012

"Djug Django deserves to be on the national stage--this is one of the hottest little bands I've ever heard.
It is my honor and pleasure to perform with these wonderful musicians!" -
Frank Campos, Ithaca College
Professor
of Trumpet, after Djug Django's March 2012 concert at Ford Hall.

"Jim Sherpa .. is the greatest washtub bass player ever.. a great innovator on the instrument." -  Bill Garrett, Metafilter.com

" [Djug Django] has a delicacy and refinement we rarely witness in jazz…the group’s overall musicality is on a very
high level – sophisticated and dead-on. In fact, there is a visible relaxation. These guys really enjoy playing together,
and that spirit comes across clear as crystal." -  
Russ Tarby and Pat Carroll, reviewing Djug Django's November 2010
performance in JazFax,  the monthly newsletter of the Jazz Appreciation Society of Syracuse

"Thank you so much for your music at our wedding!   We had the time of our lives.
It was a really beautiful occasion for us and for our families,  and you were awesome!"
- Michelle and Pedro after a Djug Django performance at their reception, August 2010

"... one of the best bands that has ever played for JASS."   - Pat Carroll, reviewing Djug Django's November 2009 performance
in JazFax, the monthly newsletter of the Jazz Appreciation Society of Syracuse

"Doug - Super job - I have heard all the local swing bands many times and you are the very best.
The band really has a nice feel, perfect for dancing with every note and phrase. Great solos by everyone.".

- Kurt Lichtmann, DJ and Swing Dance teacher, www.ithacaswingdance.com, after a dance performance by Djug Django, April 2007
