As The Birdland Django Reinhardt Festival Presents:
The Hot Club of Detroit
The Hot Club of Detroit, is a young, exciting “hot jazz” band that has gained wild popularity as a part of Mack Avenue Records. The Hot Club carries on the legacy of legendary Gypsy guitarist, Django Reinhardt. His musical brilliance and vibrant style caused a phenomenon in Europe during the 1930’s and 40’s. Reinhardt collaborated with the world’s foremost Jazz violinist, Stephane Grappelli, to create The Hot Club of France. Together, they made history as one of the greatest musical partnerships of all time.
In the spirit of Django Reinhart’s expressive style, The Hot Club of Detroit swings like mad, while adding their own captivating touch to this beautiful music. The band has been honored with many accolades, including a first-place win in the 2004 Detroit International Jazz Festival Competition. Their new, highly anticipated album—“Junction” will be released this August. Perfect timing for a summer evening cruise on the Hudson to the excitement of hot Jazz!
