Pearl Django is a jazz group established in 1994 in Tacoma, Washington by Neil Andersson, Dudley Hill,[1] and David "Pope" Firman. The group's stated focus is to incorporate the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli with American swing music. Initially a trio, they have changed and added members over the years and are now a quintet. Based in Seattle, they have played around the United States, as well as in France and Iceland.
