Hot Club of SRQ plays Gypsy Jazz deeply rooted in the style of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Their music simply swings and is full of beauty and romance! Hot Club of SRQ emulates the style of what the French call "Jazz Manouche" and "Le Jazz Hot" in the style of Sinti virtuosos and the "Quintette du Hot Club de France" circa 1934-1948.

The heart of this ensemble is the violin and vocals of Keven Aland, the guitar of Jon McLaughlin, and bass playing of Glenn Stevenson. Their unique acoustic string jazz ensemble has been cultivated and crafted for over a decade. Beyond the genre of Gypsy Jazz, their vast repertoire includes Rumba Flamenco, Bossa Nova, Samba, Tango, Bebop, Modern Jazz, Swing, Afro Cuban, and tunes from the great American songbook.
