Jazz Lounge feat. Hot Club of New England
Enjoy Live Jazz Every Wednesday from 6:30-9:30PM. Tonight’s feature: Hot Club of New England
They’re a musical collective featuring the top swing, gypsy, and hot jazz musicians in the New England area. Founded by vocalist Atla DeChamplain, violinist Jason Anick (leader of the internationally renowned gypsy jazz group The Rhythm Future Quartet), guitarist Max O’Rourke, and bassist Greg Loughman, HCNE is on a mission to bring the elegant and classic style of the swing era and the roaring 20’s to a modern audience. Their music contains echoes of Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, and other legends of the Great American Songbook, tinged with the French Manouche style of the great Django Reinhardt and the Quintette du Hot Club de France. The core instrumentation of voice, violin, acoustic guitar, and upright bass (with the option of adding piano, drums, clarinet, accordion, etc.) works exceptionally well for intimate events, and also has the power to draw people to the dance floor.
