Gypsy Jazz & Acoustic Vintage Swing Stringband


Hot Club of Hawthorne is a collective of professional musicians who play gypsy jazz: vintage (20s/30s) swing, played on acoustic stringed instruments (and even clarinet or accordion) with exotic Old World flair and feelgood charm. The presentation ranges from upbeat, fun, & lively - and danceable! - to mellow, pleasant, & elegant.

"Good communication beforehand, on time and organized, and friendly and talented musicians. If you want something more in a band, you are unable to be pleased at all! They were the perfect complement to our wedding, and we will seek them out as a married couple just to hear them again."
