Details:

Member of the Hot Club of Saratoga with their instruments outside on a nice dayHot Club of Saratoga, upstate New York’s premier gypsy swing band, performs in the spirit and style originated by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli (The Quintet of the Hot Club of France), most prominent in the 1930s yet still vibrant and gaining in popularity today.

Since forming in 2013, Hot Club of Saratoga has brought its irresistible music to myriad venues and festivals, keeping alive the tradition of a long line of gypsy jazz artists. Core musicians Chuck Kish, rhythm guitar; Tucker Callander, violin; and Jonathan Greene, clarinet; often are joined by others in the club’s “collective.”

Adding solo guitar, string bass, and sax allows the group to explore the full range of this musical style from sweet, soulful ballads through hard-driving swing and fiery, upbeat tempos that make it impossible to sit still.
