Stephane Wrembel @ BOP STOP

May 16 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm


Stephane Wrembel @ BOP STOP

BOP STOP is excited to welcome back Stephane Wrembel, one of today's foremost guitarists specializing in the style of Django Reinhardt. Tickets for this evening are $25 each. This event will not be livestreamed.


Hailing from Fontainebleau, France, Wrembel honed his craft traversing the French countryside before graduating Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music in Boston. With a career that spans the globe, he has released an impressive 17 albums under his own name and the pseudonym, The Django Experiment.

May 2023 saw the release of Django New Orleans, a captivating album recorded with his NYC-based specialty group of the same name. Garnering acclaim for both the album and his live performances, Wrembel continues to leave an indelible mark on the music scene.

Wrembel's original compositions, including "Bistro Fada" featured in Midnight in Paris, "Big Brother" from Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and the original score of Rifkin’s Festival, have earned him world-wide recognition. Midnight in Paris even secured the Grammy Award® for "Best Compilation Soundtrack." His talents were showcased at the 2012 Academy Awards® when renowned composer/producer Hans Zimmer handpicked him for his "All Star Band," featuring luminaries such as Esperanza Spalding, Pharrell, and Shelia E.

Collaborations with acclaimed musicians, such as mandolinist/composer David Grisman, reflect the breadth of his influence. Having shared the stage with the likes of Elvis Costello, Patti Smith, The Roots, Medeski Martin & Wood, Me’shell Ndegeocello, John Scofield, Larry Keel, Stochelo Rosenberg, Sam Bush, and more, his versatility shines.

In 2019, Wrembel unveiled Django L’Impressionniste, a lauded collection featuring 17 of Reinhardt’s early preludes for solo guitar, solidifying his unique position as the only guitarist globally to perform these 17 preludes in their entirety.

Wrembel is also a musical director and educator. Since 2003, Wrembel has curated the Django a Gogo Music Festival and Guitar Camp, a week-long celebration of the Sinti guitar style that brings together musicians from around the world in prestigious venues like Carnegie Hall and The Town Hall and includes a series of master guitar classes.

Wrembel is currently gearing up for the release of 3 CDs--Triptych: Phase 1, 2 and 3—that he recorded with his band and special guest pianist, Jean-Milchel Pilc--in April of 2024 featuring new compositions by both he and Pilc.

Stephane Wrembel’s world-class band includes Josh Kaye on guitar, Ari Folman-Cohen on bass, and Nick Anderson on drums.
