Hot Club Faux Gitane and The Creole Jazz Kings
Hot Club Faux Gitane is an acoustic swing band based in Modesto, California, that plays in the Gypsy jazz tradition of Django Reinhardt and his Quintette du Hot Club de France. Django was a Belgian-born Gypsy guitarist who came to prominence in France in the 1930s. He and his Quintette mixed Parisian dance-hall musette, traditional gypsy music, and the American jazz of Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington to create a new genre, known today simply as "Gypsy jazz" or "Gypsy swing."
Combining the experience of seven years of steady Wednesday gigs with a lineup of experienced players, The Creole Jazz Kings come to entertain and dazzle with their well-spiced joyful jazz served hot with a dash of blues. Material includes early jazz masterpieces from Armstrong, Morton and Ellington along with New Orleans revival and New York pop tunes.
