This ensemble of accomplished and versatile musicians celebrates the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s pioneering Quintette du Hot Club de France. The Hot Club of San Francisco borrows the instrumentation of violin, bass, and guitars from the original Hot Club while breathing new life into the music with innovative arrangements of classic tunes and original compositions from the group’s superb lead guitarist, Paul Mehling. Featuring the silken violin of twice GRAMMY® Award-winning Evan Price, the velvet vocals of Isabelle Fontaine, and a swinging rhythm section, the group never fails to surprise and delight.

To hear the ensemble live or on any of their fourteen albums is to be carried back to the tight, smoky jazz clubs of 1930s Paris and to the refined lounge of the famous Hotel Ritz. Often called gypsy jazz, the music of the Hot Club of San Francisco has entranced audiences around the globe for over twenty-five years. Acoustic Guitar has hailed the group’s playing as “intricate, scorching and often brilliant.” With frequent national and international tours—from Iceland to Lincoln Center and the Monterey Jazz Festival—the Hot Club of San Francisco keeps this historic music fresh and alive.
