A Celebration of the music of Django Reinhardt and other Gypsy Jazz Music past and present featuring the The New Hot Club Of America, The Hot Club of Las Vegas and other groups to be announced.

The New Hot Club Of America
Recently formed, The New Hot Club Of America is an ensemble comprised of some of the top gypsy jazz artists living and performing this music in North America. Modeled on the original instrumentation of The Hot Club Of France, The New Hot Club Of America pays particular attention to recapturing the sound, style and spirit of the Hot Club of France by performing music composed and performed by Django Reinhardt & Stephane Grappelli. One of the concepts behind The New Hot Club Of America is to have an evolving group of featured soloists on rotation. In this way the NHOA can celebrate the many collaborations Django Reinhardt made with other artists in Europe and the USA by inviting singers and instrumental soloists to collaborate in the same way.

The International String Trio
The International String Trio was founded in 1999 by its musical director and guitarist, Slava Tolstoy. During the last 10 years, the group has performed at more than 1000 venues across the USA and has gained national recognition for its distinct sound and stylistic diversity. The trio’s repertoire includes classical, jazz, popular and world music (Italian, French, Russian, Jewish, Spanish, Latin American, Gipsy and Irish).

The International String Trio has developed a unique concert program that is both highly entertaining and educational, energetic and musically gratifying. The group plays up to 150 gigs a year at venues including: concert halls, jazz clubs, universities, schools and private homes. At our performances, we enjoy leading our audiences on a cultural musical journey, as we perform music from countries around the world.

The Hot Club of Las Vegas
The Hot Club of Las Vegas is a popular local Gypsy Jazz Band that performs original compositions as well as the music of Django Reinhardt, Bireli Lagrene, The Rosenberg Trio; and other music past and present including, Boleros, Flamenco Rhumbas, Tangos, Waltzes, Bossa Novas and other World Beat rhythms. The Hot Club of Las Vegas, features Hawaiian guitarist Mundo Juillerat, Adrianna Thurber (violin), Pepe Jimenez (percussion), Christopher Davis (bass), and Marlow Valentin (guitar).For more information, go to www.hotclublv.com.
