Alaska Center for the Performing Arts Inc, 621 West 6th Avenue, Anchorage, AK 99501, United States

On October 19th and 20th, the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts will be playing host to a unique event entitled In The Footsteps Of Django.

This is a tribute to the musical legacy of Django Reinhardt - and particular attention is paid to the innovations he made in defining a passionate style of gypsy jazz music.

While this kind of music was simply astonishing and unprecedented when it first started to emerge in the 1930s, it is still emulated and revered by aficionados today.

Some of the best new gypsy jazz performers of Europe will come together in Anchorage for this event - which promises to be an unmissable treat.

Entry for the concert starts at $21, with premium seats available for up to $50.

Residents at the Millennium Alaskan Hotel Anchorage will find they are just under four miles away from the venue, which can be reached in less than ten minutes by taxi.
