the hot clubbers
The Hot Clubbers epitomize one of the biggest trends in music right now. The music mixes French standards and vibrant Gypsy jazz with a rousing repertoire of Jacques Brel, Francis Cabrel, Serge Gainsbourg, Edith Piaf and of course Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. "Hot Club" music was de rigueur of high society Paris which became prohibited during WW2. It stayed alive thanks to zazou - "swing youth."
Lead by David Langlois on Washboard and vocals this acoustic group is one of the hottest jazz bands out of NYC. Their syncopated rhythms and energetic swing will keep the party going!
