The Idiomatiques play a mixture of Gypsy Jazz, Latin, mainstream jazz and even some R’nB. They are the first Gypsy Jazz band in history to place in Billboard’s contemporary jazz top 30 chart.

5:00 pm potluck / 6:00 pm show

The Red Barn Community Music Series presents The Idiomatiques in concert.  The Santa Barbara based Idiomatiques combine instrumental virtuosity with vocals and comedy using a mixture of Gypsy Jazz, Latin, mainstream jazz and even some R’nB. The band draws mainly from Gypsy Jazz, but the musicians, accomplished in many genres, each bring their own flair. The Idiomatiques recently became the first Gypsy Jazz band in history to place in Billboard’s contemporary jazz top 30 chart. Members of the band have worked with Gilles Apap, Michael Jackson, Boyz ll Men, Larry Carlton, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Ronnie Laws and a host of other world renowned recording artists. The concert is on Saturday, July 1, in the Red Barn located at the Los Osos Community Park. Doors open at 4:30 pm; potluck at 5:00 pm; concert at 6:00 pm.


The Idiomatiques have recently released their debut album, Let’s Go Have Some Fun. Chock full of swinging Gypsy standards, original compositions and unique arrangements, this generous musical offering (14 tracks) has got enough fun and variety for even the most austere listener.  Check out the song sampler on their website .
