Hot Club of Buffalo – Beaujolais Wines
Thursday, November 21, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$10
The Hot Club of Buffalo plays a special form of jazz known as Gypsy Swing, which was created in the 1930’s by the legendary 2-fingered guitarist, Django Reinhardt. The style blends American big band swing with exotic European Gypsy sounds. The Hot Club approaches this vintage music with a modern sensibility, adding elements of rock and world music.
The band features Josh Assad on guitar & vocals and Kevin O’Brien on upright bass; both were members of the renowned gypsy jazz band, Babik. Joining them are virtuosic lead guitarist Dean Gionis and super-swinging violinist, E.J. Koeppel. The Hot Club of Buffalo has won 3 JazzBuffalo Awards in the Traditional Jazz and World Music categories.
