These 6 shows mark the celebration of Wrembel's collaboration with Pilc, entitled Triptych, which will be released nationally on March 29, 2024.

His most recent release, "Django New Orleans," debuted in May 2023. Notably, his original compositions have been featured in the films "Midnight in Paris," "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," and "Rifkin’s Festival," with "Midnight in Paris" earning a Grammy Award® for "Best Compilation Soundtrack," featuring the Wrembel’s composition "Bistro Fada." Wrembel has also shared the stage with an array of iconic artists, including Elvis Costello, Patti Smith, The Roots, Medeski Martin & Wood, Me’shell Ndegeocello, John Scofield, Larry Keel, Stochelo Rosenberg, Sam Bush, and more. His annual music festival, "Django A Gogo," has gained global recognition as a premier event celebrating the music of Django Reinhardt.
