      With a sound like no other, OtHA welcomes Swing Je T’aime Gypsy Jazz to Fort Collins for the perfect outdoor, late afternoon, summer musical treat. Swing Je T'aime's members individually specialize in jazz, Manouche, classical, Latin, Dixieland, Brazilian, pop, and bluegrass. [Swing Je T'aime] brings elements of Europe and Brazil to the jazzy goings-on, drawing influence from gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, among others. The musicians range in age from 20s to 60s, ensuring both authenticity and a hip reverence for swing. ( The Villager) This eclectic sound, paired with an award winning craft Odell beverage, is the perfect way to end the first weekend of June.

      "We'll do anything; I mean, we took a piano trio by Schubert, and morphed it into a Bolero, then set it to lyrics about a couple breaking up," Walker said in a news release. "Another example is our Gypsy Jazz retake on a medley of songs from Andrew Lloyd Weber's Phantom of the Opera."

      Experiencing this eclectic sound is the perfect way to end the first weekend of June.
