Abstract: In this paper we give sufficient conditions for irregular Gabor systems to be frames. We show that for a large class of window functions, every relatively uniformly discrete sequence in $\mathbb R^2$ with sufficiently high density will generate a Gabor frame. Explicit frame bounds are given. We also study the stability of irregular Gabor frames and show that every Gabor frame with arbitrary time-frequency parameters is stable if the window function is nice enough. Explicit stability bounds are given.
