MORE ABOUT GYPSY JAZZ AND THE BAND

The Hot Club sound emerged from Europe in the 1930s, combining Swing Jazz with the rippling melodies of Parisian dance-halls, and the distinctive Gypsy harmonies of the Eastern Mediterranean. It is now usually known as Gypsy Jazz or Jazz Manouche.

The Hot Club of Cape Town is the Cape’s premier Gypsy Jazz group, playing hot, swinging music that appeals to people across the board. Formed in 2016 by three experienced musicians, the group has now played over 100 shows, both private and public. The mesmerizing pulse of the rhythm gets people of all ages dancing wherever the group plays, daytime or evening, indoors or out. From jazz standards of the 1920's and 30's, through the masterpieces of the Gypsy Jazz canon, to original compositions that continue the tradition into the present day, the Hot Club of Cape Town can make any space swing!
