Franglais is the currently the only child of Ben Wood and Eve Seltzer's marriage. On a trip to Samois for the Django Rheinhart festival, it dawned on them that although Django played with vocalists, that there were no gypsy jazz bands featuring one.
After many incarnations, the band finally settled on its current lineup of lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass, and of course, vocals.
Franglais seeks to blend the rhythmic drive of gypsy jazz, the nostalgia of French chanson, and the distinct soul of American music.
