Love jazz? DjangoFest returns to 142 Throckmorton June 6–8, and with it comes three concerts, six workshops and a jam session featuring 18 of the top Gypsy Jazz musicians in the world. In its 10th year, the festival pays homage to its namesake, Django Reinhardt — the father of Gyspy Jazz, which features a unique rhythm and chord progression — with a bevy of musicians, wine, delicious food and learning opportunities fostered by the musicians who know best. Master Gypsy Jazz rhythm with Kevin Nolan, the swing fiddle with Jason Anick or the Grappelli Style with Tim Kliphuis.

Tickets: $35 to $45 general admission, $50 to $60 reserved seating, $45 workshops, $150 full festival pass.
