HAWLEY - Swing to the vibe of 1930s “hotclub” jazz at The Settlers Inn Jazz Supper Club on Sunday, Feb. 15 of Presidents’ Day weekend.

The Gypsy Jazz Quintet plays from 6 to 9 pm, and a special prix fixe menu is served from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.

The Gypsy Jazz Quintet was formed in 2006 as a musical tribute to legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and Parisian violinist Stephane Grappelli.

This is the high-energy swing music played in the dance halls of Paris from 1934 to 1939.

Organized by guitarist/music arranger, John Curtin, the Gypsy Jazz Quintet has performed at music festivals, colleges, jazz clubs and resorts. They recorded their highly acclaimed CD “Live at the Deer Head Inn” in October 2011.

Renowned guitarist Arlen Roth describes the band as, "A joy to hear and to experience... a great song selection, musicianship of the highest caliber, and beautifully paced sets of songs.

“I couldn't stop tapping my feet and moving to the music.”

Their line-up for The Settlers Inn Jazz Supper Club will include classic songs like “La Vien Rose,” “The Tango,” “Oh Lady Be Good,” “Bossa Dorado,” “I'll See You in My Dreams,” “Deuce Ambiance,” “I Can't Believe You're In Love With Me” and “Nuages.”

The Gypsy Jazz Quintet is made up of five players from diverse backgrounds. Curtin is a life-long student of the guitar.

A native of NYC, he began learning guitar at age 10, and studied jazz guitar with Allen Hanlon and Howard Morgen.

His guitar influences include “everyone from Chet Atkins to Frank Zappa, with a special fondness for John McLaughlin and Django.”

Curtin holds a B.S. in Music Education from Lehman College and was an on-staff music arranger for Warner Bros Music in NYC.

He’s been a resident of Milford since 1988 and since 2002 is Music Director for theme shows at the Woodloch Pines Resort.

Vince Marrone is a guitarist based out of NYC. Originally from Dunmore, PA, Vince's influences range from straight-ahead jazz through fusion, funk and R&B and most recently he has been exploring the music of Django Reinhardt and the gypsy jazz style.

Vince has played in numerous local bands (currently with bassist Bob Wilson as the Jazz Assassins) throughout his 25-plus years as a guitarist and continues to play wherever and whenever possible to sharpen his musical skills. Vince also teaches guitar.

Bob Wilson from Honesdale took up the acoustic bass 15 years ago, although he has been playing the electric for nearly twice as long.

Primarily self-taught, Bob absorbed all he could collaborating with as many musicians as possible. For the past few years Bob has been studying with jazz bassist Tony Marino and currently plays with the Jazz Assassins.

Some influences include Jaco Pastorius, Charles Mingus, Dave Holland, Miles Davis, Frank Zappa and James Brown.

Clarinetist Nick Driscoll is Director of the Wilkes University Jazz Orchestra, a member of the Great Valley Music Society and an original member of the Straight Out Jazz Quartet.

Nick has appeared on WVIA Public Radio and Television in classical, reggae, folk and jazz ensembles.

He has also performed with Peter Schickele (PDQ Bach) at Alice Tully Hall in NYC and with the NEPA Philharmonic. Nick holds a B.S. in Music Education from Wilkes College and a M.M. from the Manhattan School of Music.

From Scranton Pennsylvania, violinist Mark Woodyatt was the first-ever student to be accepted to the Eastman School of music for Jazz Violin, where he double-majored in Classical Performance.

Mark soloed with the top Jazz Big Band at Eastman, where he performed the tango music of Astor Piazzolla on tour in Chicago.

His ensemble experience includes performances with the Collegium Musicum, the Eastman Jazz Band and String Orchestras, OSSIA, the Marywood Orchestra and the Binghamton Philharmonic.
