  • Description
  • Five of the UK’s top Jazz and Manouche musicians come together in homage to the band of Parisian Jazz legends Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli: le Quintette du Hot Club de France.

    They will perform some of the Quintette’s best loved compositions as well as jazz standards of the era and a selection of some of the modern Gypsy Jazz repertoire.

    The show features rising star violinist Tobie Medland, British Guitar legend John Wheatcroft and internationally renowned pianist Sam Leak. They are joined by the impenetrable rhythm section of Cornelius Corkery (Rhythm Guitar) and Simon Read (Double Bass).

    Django and Stephane’s Quintette du Hot Club de France provided the iconic soundtrack to Jazz age Paris. To this day, they remain two of the most influential and loved figures in European music history.
