with everything. Thanks very much, and we'll be sure to stop by Lot 10 next time we're up in Ithaca!"

" [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!"

"... 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
- 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.".
