Join us for an evening of great music! This acoustic swing band, based in Modesto, plays in the gypsy jazz tradition of Django Reinhardt and his Quintette du Hot Club de France. With rhythm and lead guitars and acoustic bass typical of gypsy swing, the groups adds mandolin, bassoon, and clarinet. This unique collection of instruments allows the group to capture a vitality and freshness that makes this music new all over again. Hot Club Faux Gitane augments the traditional gypsy repertoire with original compositions, jazz standards, and even Latin tunes — all played in the swinging gypsy jazz style.
