About this event

Join us for an afternoon of Jazz with The Hot Club of Jupiter, formed to provide the music for the 2013 Renault Clio online ad campaign, which was promptly judged too lewd for public consumption and withdrawn. The band, however, lives on, drawn together by a shared love of the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. As the group has evolved they have broadened their influences to include straight-ahead jazz, New Orleans grooves, Brazilian carnival samba and French surrealism.

The Hot Club realised much of their repertoire, drawn from both the American songbook and music hall tunes favoured by Stephane and Django, had a direct connection to the city where they perform. In their recent album, Vs London, they set out to explore the rich history of London as a home and inspiration for musicians.

The band have enjoyed a busy touring and performing schedule and are regular at both London jazz venues and on the swing dance circuit. Previous highlights include sold outs gigs at London’s Pizza Express Dean Street, a BBC Radio 3 live session and a mammoth 8 gigs in 3 days at the Cork Jazz Festival."
