DAILY BRUNCH SPECIALS (until we run out)


If you love crêpes, boeuf bourguignon, crème brûlée, and the toe-tapping style of jazz music pioneered by Django Reinhardt, we hope you'll join us for this special dinner and concert. We're honored to be a stop on this renowned band's spring tour.

Djangophonique is an award winning project that delivers the expressive freedom that is at the heart of Django Reinhardt’s jazz manouche. With respect for the tradition and a fearless creativity that bends the conventions of the style, Djangophonique is keeping the Hot Club revival alive and well. The result is a sound that’s unmistakable to fans of the music, and alluring to the uninitiated—a sound that can bring the lively energy of a Parisian dance hall to the quietest listening room or captivate a buzzing festival audience with the aching nostalgia of a shimmering ballad.

On this tour route the band is joined by Norwegian staff favorite Christo Ruppenthal and Forrest Evans of Christo’s Novelty Combo. They will both accompany Djangophonique and perform a few of their own songs throughout the concert. Christo's Novelty Combo presents a unique mixture of the Vaudeville era, novelty and jazz-infused hot steel guitar and ukulele of the 1920s and 30s "Hawaiian Craze," and the swinging sounds of French, Django Reinhardt-style small group swing jazz from the 1930s and 40s. Think Hot Hawaiian guitar meets Jazz à la Django!

The price of admission covers the show and dinner. A cash bar will be available.

$50 Includes all food and concert. Cash bar available. To avoid Eventbrite fees, please stop into the Norwegian to purchase tickets directly.

Anchored in the rich loam of Folk/Americana music, The Lone Canary embodies the harmonious talents of Heather Camacho and Jesse Fox. Camacho graces the stage with her rich vocals, dynamic fiddle, and rhythmic percussion, complemented by Fox's gruff voice and acoustic guitar resonances.

Lauded by A&R Factory for their "hypnotically suspenseful Americana folk." The Lone Canary's vocals are compared to the evocative tones of Stevie Nicks, culminating in an ethereal soundscape teeming with suspense and emotion.

Based in Rockford, IL, The Lone Canary is a long-standing musical alliance between Fox and Camacho, dating back to their high school years. Their collective journey resonates musically, delivering an authentic sound that is equal parts haunting and captivating.
