Hot Club of San Francisco
The Onstage Ogden Downtown Series continues on Friday night, this time celebrating the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s pioneering Quintette du Hot Club de France with this ensemble of accomplished and versatile musicians. The Hot Club of San Francisco, according to the event description, “borrows the instrumentation of violin, bass, and guitars from the original Hot Club while breathing new life into the music with innovative arrangements of classic tunes and original compositions from the group’s superb lead guitarist, Paul Mehling. Also featuring the silken violin of twice GRAMMY Award-winning Evan Price, the velvet vocals of Isabelle Fontaine, and a swinging rhythm section, the group never fails to surprise and delight.” Tickets can be purchased at onstageogden.org.
