Alfonso Ponticelli and Swing Gitan 

When: Sat., Dec. 19, 10 p.m. 2009
Chicago's Premiere Gypsy-Jazz Band Returns to The Cave December 19 at 10 PM Alfonso Ponticelli and Swing Gitan is Chicago's premier gypsy-jazz band. The group plays the 1930s-style music of guitarist Django Reinhardt – foot-tappin' swing played on acoustic instruments. It's a blend of the jubilant swing of early jazz with the feisty passion of gypsy music, plus a strong dose of guitar pyrotechnics and virtuosic improvisation.
