This is a real long shot but I was on vacation and watching the tele in the cabin, possibly TV5 (a french channel) and there was this band that played Django-esque gypsy jazz, but it was really agressive and fusiony (the guys could really shed!) I think there were about 4 or 5 in the band and all I can is one of the members commenting on how everyone preally remember layed the guitar and they didn't have a bassist. They made one member pick up the bass and the first thing he played was the melody to a Django tune (i forget which) and since then he's been a bass player. IIRC they were all European of some sorts with thick strong accents but I couldn't tell / don't remember.... Does anyone have any slight idea about who I could be talking about?
