DANTE HALL THEATER OF THE ARTS PRESENTS

 

The Hot Club of San Francisco

Tuesday, February 15th, 2005 @ 7:30pm__________________________All Tickets $25

 Often called gypsy jazz, the music of The Hot Club of San Francisco has entranced audiences around the globe for over ten years.  Hearing the ensemble live carries the listener back to the 1930s and to the small, smoky jazz clubs of Paris or the refined lounges of the famous Hotel Ritz.  The Hot Club of San Francisco is an ensemble of accomplished and versatile musicians celebrating the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s pioneering Hot Club de France.  The ensemble borrows the all-string instrumentation of violin, bass and guitar from the original Hot Club, but breathes new life into the music with innovative arrangements of classic tunes and original compositions from the group’s superb lead guitarist, Paul Mehling.  Critics have hailed the group’s playing as “intricate, scorching and often brilliant…” Acoustic Guitar.  From festivals in Mexico and France to concert halls across North America, The Hot Club of San Francisco keeps this historic music fresh and alive.
