BATTLE OF THE BANDS: “Swing Gitan” Results


To review: The song was the Gypsy jazz tune “Swing Gitan,” and the contestants were The Ghost Notes and a group which the person who posted it to YouTube said was led by Bireli Lagrene, although I’ve figured out it’s actually Angelo Debarre. The guy with the glasses in this video is Bireli Lagrene…

The poster must have thought Florin Niculescu, who played violin on the track, was Bireli. Whatever.

By about Saturday, it looked like “Bireli” would be shut out, but he finally received two votes, and one voter liked both equally, so I’m giving each a half vote. The results:

The Ghost Notes: 10 1/2
Bireli Lagrene [sic]: 2 1/2


Congratulations to The Ghost Notes, and a pat on the back to “Bireli Lagrene.”

The next Battle of the Bands will be next Wednesday. Have to go find the tune now…
