Nuages Jazz Quartet
Based in Bellingham, WA, between Seattle WA and Vancouver BC, we are a band dedicated to performing in the Manouche/Gypsy jazz tradition. We founded Nuages in 2011 under the inspiration of Django Reinhardt. Our group pays homage to Django by performing several of his compositions but deviates from the traditional hot club quintette. Nuages has been an active group here in Bellingham WA performing for a wide range of events including fundraisers for Sustainable Connections, local concerts, Djangofest N.W. and currently serve as the house band for Uisce on Fridays (except during the artwalk). Nuages is Bellingham’s local modern Gypsy jazz quintet, specializing in blending the music of Django Reinhardt with modern jazz/musical concepts. Michael Paul leads the ensemble on Soprano Saxophone along with Zach Zenovic on guitar, Nick Sokol on Mandolin and Sarah Yates on bass.
