Jazztory Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli

Jazztory's 30th Jubilee Edition will be dedicated to Gypsy jazz, also called jazz-manus. This is a world-renowned European jazz style and its creator is considered to be one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century, the Belgian guitarist of gypsy origin, Django Reinhart. He and violinist Stephane Grappelli are the most influential musicians in this jazz direction that deeply affect many generations of musicians after them. In order to recreate the music of Django, Stephane, and the original Quintette du Hot Club de France, special guests of Jazztory will be the boys from the Hot Club de Plovdiv.

Blind Whisky Tasting

Many whiskey fans think they know exactly what type of whiskey they like, which distilleries they prefer and which region produces their favorite flavors. But only after they’ve done the so-called blind tasting can they understand if they can really trust their senses and personal preferences.

You’ll be surprised how your perceptions change when you don’t know where a whiskey comes from, how old it is, which distillery it is from and everything else that you can see, smell and try.

What would happen if we leave the brands aside and allow our senses to feel?

18th January


Each team consists of 2 players who alternate to throw the ball in the opposing cups and drink their cups at a hit by the opponent. The teams have 7 cups - 6 in a triangle and full of beer and 7th full of water to wash the ball when it falls off the table. Any direct hit of the ball in a cup of the opposing team
- one of their players drinks the contents of the cup, and then their team is fine to throw. The cup is drunk right away, and then the game continues - it is forbidden to separate the cups. Players whose cups are targeted do not have the right to touch the ball in a direct shooting. If the ball is on the table, however - they have the right to stop it with a hand before it gets into their cups. When hit, when the ball hits the surface of the table and then entered a cup, the team drinks 2 cups - the one with the ball and one of their choice. The game ends when one team stays without cups at the table.

Entry - 5 lv. Prize: A bottle of whiskey

Old School Trombone @Bee Bop Café

If asked to describe the sound of Villie Stoyanov's favorite trombone, most people who know him would probably use the words "powerful", "strong", "arrogant", "explosive", "monstrous". And that's not going to be a lie because Villie has a very distinctive style of play that can hardly go unnoticed.

With this program, Villie wants to show you the other side of his trombone - gentle and romantic, accepting the challenge of showing the trombone as a solo instrument.

The program features works by Duke Ellington, Slide Hampton, Charlie Parker, Thelonius Monk, and others with whom Villie walks the listeners on the streets of New Orleans and shows them how jazz sounded in the 1930s and 1940s.

And with his cheerful character, Villie manages to re-create, apart from the energy of New Orleans, the typical Ragtime, and Dixieland sound, but also the love of jazz, reggae, funky, hip-hop, and the audience.
