Freight & Salvage | Berkeley, CA

Join The Freight to celebrate the life and music of Django Reinhardt with four days of shows and workshops. Festival Artistic Director Paul Mehling and The Freight’s Artistic Director Peter Williams have assembled an all-star, international lineup of musicians.
Born in Nurmes, Finland and now NYC-based, Olli Soikkeli is a Gypsy Jazz devotee, inspired by Django Reinhardt. He's graced jazz stages across Finland and toured Europe with Paulus Schäfer. In NYC since 2014, Soikkeli has played at iconic venues like Town Hall and Birdland Jazz Club. He's cut albums with luminaries like Bucky Pizzarelli and Stochelo Rosenberg. Co-leading the Rhythm Future Quartet, he's dropped acclaimed records, including Travels (2016) and Rhythm Future Quartet and Friends (2018) featuring Cyrille Aimée and Stochelo Rosenberg. Recently, he's delved into diverse musical ventures, showcasing his dynamic range.
Nicknamed the Gypsy-jazz Warbler by the New York Times, Tatiana Eva-Marie is a transatlantic bandleader, singer, author, and actress based in Brooklyn. She plays French pop derived from the Django tradition with Balkan Gypsy and folk influences.
The Avalon Jazz Band features Gabe Terracciano (violin), Dennis Pol & Vinny Raniolo (guitars), and Wallace Stelzer (bass).
The Hot Club of San Francisco celebrates the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s pioneering Quintette du Hot Club de France. The HCSF borrows the instrumentation of violin, bass, and guitars from the original Hot Club while breathing new life into the music with innovative arrangements of classic tunes and original compositions from the group’s superb lead guitarist, Paul Mehling. Featuring the silken violin of twice GRAMMY® Award-winning Evan Price and a swinging rhythm section, the group never fails to surprise and delight.
