|Genres||Gypsy jazz, swing|
|Years active||1980s – present|
|Associated acts||The Rosenberg Trio|
He started playing the guitar when he was 10 years old. His family consisted of musicians and he learned from his father and his uncle Wasso Grunholz, and by listening to the records of his hero, Django Reinhardt.
With his cousins Nous’che and Nonnie Rosenberg he formed a trio and played at festivals within gypsy communities in Holland, Belgium, Germany and Austria. In 1989 they played ‘impromptu’ at the Django Reinhardt festival in Samois sur Seine France after which their first CD ‘Seresta’ was launched. In June 1993 they appeared at Grapelli’s 85-th birthday Celebration Concert at Carnegie Hall.
Stochelo first played a Jacques Favino guitar, and later he bought an old Selmer guitar, number 504. The legendary Django played the same model with the number 503.
Stochelo recently started the Rosenberg Academy, an online school devoted to teaching an expanding audience of Gypsy Jazz enthusiasts. It prioritizes Gypsy technique whilst teaching all of Stochello's songs. The program works on a monthly subscription fee of approximately €25.00.
