Betty's Bounce is a trio of two acoustic guitars and acoustic bass that performs music in the spirit of guitarist Django Reinhardt, which originated in France in the 1930s. Reinhardt teamed with violinist Stéphane Grappelli to co-found the Quintette du Hot Club de France whose music from the 1930's and 40's epitomized the genre. The repertoire of Betty's Bounce includes classic and modern popular tunes played with a “gypsy” twist.

and taught for many years. He currently teaches jazz, classical
and blues guitar, specializing in theory, improvisation and

in Jazz Studies from The New England Conservatory. In addition,
he has studied jazz with Charlie Banacos, Mick Goodrick, Pat

Betty's Bounce played during our wedding's cocktail hour and dinner. They were fantastic! They were very communicative and friendly leading up to the wedding and wanted to craft the music to fit the night. During the cocktail hour the music was a little more upbeat and during dinner it created the perfect romantic atmosphere. Many of our guests commented on how much they loved the music for creating a classy, romantic and timeless feeling. We couldn't recommend them enough!
