  • Django Memorial Festival & HotClubNews e.V. beendet

    django augsburg2010klDas seit 25 Jahren alljährlich stattfindende Django Memorial Festival des HotClubNews e.V. wird mit sofortiger Wirkung nicht mehr stattfinden!

    Darüber hinaus wird auch der Hotclubnews-Verein mit sofortiger Wirkung aufgelöst und die website www.hotclubnews.de abgeschaltet. Über die genauen Gründe kann man leider nur spekulieren da vom Verin selbst kein weiteres offizielles Statement zu erfahren war. Spekulationen besagen dass es ggf. Streit im Vereinsvorstand gegeben hat oder finanzielle Gründe ausschlaggebend waren. Möglicherweise auch beides.

    Bei aller Kritik die man den Veranstaltern und Verantwortlichen des Vereins in vielerlei Hinsicht hier und da durchaus öfter zurecht angetragen hat, ist dies dennoch ein herber Verlust für die Gypsy-Jazz-Szene in Deutschland.
    Haben sich in den letzten Jahren zwar eine Reihe von neuen Festivals im Berich des Jazz-Manouche/Gypsyjazz in der BRD angesiedelt war das Django Memorial in Augsburg dennoch immer ein wichtiger Treffpunkt für viele Fans und Musiker dieser Musik, Schnittstelle zwischen Publikum und Machern.

    Legendär sind die Aftershow-Sessions mit top Musikern aus aller Welt welche Anfangs in den ersten Jahren oft bis in die frühen Morgenstunden gedauert haben. Legendäre Auftritte von Weltklasse-Musikern wie dem Rosenberg Trio, Romane, Fapy Lafertin, Wawau Adler, Andreas Öberg, Selmer #607, Gismo Graf, Bireli Lagrene, Gonzalo Bergara uvm haben das Programm des Django Memorial Festivals immer zu etwas besonderem gemacht.

    AndreasOberg3Umso mehr schade ist der gismo joellocherZeitpunkt, denn grade war das Festival dabei sich etwas von einigen Jahren des Besucherrückgangs zu erholen, sowohl was das Publikum anbetraf als auch die Anzahl der vertretenen Musiker welche in den Gitarrenaustellungen ebenso legedäre Sessions abhielten.

    Eine weitere wichtige Location des Jazz-Manouche wird somit in Deutschland leider zu Grabe getragen. Schade.




  • Django Memorial Festival & HotClubNews e.V. canceled

    django augsburg2010klEversince the last 25 years the "Django Memorial Festival" of the HotClubNews e.V. took place and now - it will be canceled forever!

    The more the Hotclubnews-Association will be split up and the website www.hotclubnews.de soon be canceled as well. The exact reasons are only guessable as there has not been a dedicated statement of the association...  but rumors go around that there has been a deviding struggle amongst the members of the association and/or maybe even financial reasons were the reason. Maybe even both.

    Despite all the criticism which in many ways quite often rightly applied to the organizers and leaders of the association, this is nevertheless a severe loss for the gypsy-jazz scene in Germany.
    In the last few years a number of new festivals in the field of jazz-manouche/Gypsy-Jazz in germany have been established, but nevertheless the "Django Memorial" located in Augsburg has still become almost an institution, an important meeting place for many fans and musicians of this music, a close interface between the audience and the players.

    Legendary aftershow-Sessions with top musicians from all over the world took place within the first years of the festival, sometime until the break of dawn. And lengendary shows of worldclass musicians of the genre like the Rosenberg Trio, Romane, Fapy Lafertin, Wawau Adler, Andreas Öberg, Selmer #607, Gismo Graf, Bireli Lagrene, Gonzalo Bergara a.m.m. made the programmation of the "Django Memorial Festivals" to something very special all the time over the last 25 years. Now it´s finished for good...

    AndreasOberg3gismo joellocherEven more sad is the time for the cancelation cause  the festival was just recovering a bit from a few years of decline in number of visitors to both the audience as well as the number of represented musicians in the guitar exhibitions as well as in the sessions.

    Another important location of jazz-manouche in Germany unfortunately has been burried. What a pity!
