Bands

Jack Soref & Jameson Stewart

Duos/Trios/Quartets/Quintets

are a modular collection of ensembles that revolve around the longtime musical partnership of guitarists Jack Soref and Jameson Stewart.

Reaching both forward and back in time, the band pays homage to the music of Django Reinhardt while simultaneously enriching the tradition, with many their own compositions.

The chemistry of these two musicians always yields a fertile musical dialogue, and many wonderful surprises. The duo is usually augmented with one or two special guests, so in addition to guitars, expect to hear upright bass, tuba, violin, clarinet, or accordion.
