Djangophonique is a musical project born out of reverence for the  Parisian Jazz Manouche style that was made popular by the legendary  Sinti guitarist Django Reinhardt and his Quintette du Hot Club de  France. While remaining steeped in the rich and virtuosic tradition, the  group brings this music into the present with stunning improv,  spontaneity and musical interaction. Hot swing, lush ballads, musette  waltzes, jazz standards, boleros, and moody minor pieces are all fused  together with theatrical flair and a sense of humor.

Born in a  sandstone victorian farmhouse that has been in his family since it was  built four generations ago, Andrew Brown is the son of a Motown session  musician and grew up listening to the sounds of his dad’s piano as he  steeped in musical influences from Duke Ellington to Stevie Wonder. As a  young man returning from a trip to New Orleans with a newfound interest  in Swing music, he co-founded the eclectic americana group Appleseed  Collective, with whom he has toured 150+ dates a year. Traveling all  over the continental United States, playing esteemed venues and  festivals such as The Ark, Sisters Folk Festival, Wheatland, Cervantes  Ballroom, Summercamp Music Festival, Schuba’s, and The Ann Arbor Folk  Festival at Hill Auditorium, he cut his teeth as a guitarist, songwriter  and band leader. Since slowing down his touring schedule in 2017 he  began tirelessly practicing and performing the music of his favorite  guitar player: Django Reinhardt. Since then he has studied at various  music camps with many of the genres heavy hitting players such as Angelo  Debarre, Sebastian Gineaux, and Gonzalo Bergara, and was even invited  to back up Denis Chang at one of his concerts. Andrew currently plays  throughout Michigan with his own project Djangophonique, his band  Appleseed Collective, and his friends projects Third Coast Gypsy Jazz,  Smoking Dandies. He also teaches guitar, both generally and specifically  in the style of Django.
