Gypsy jazz with Hot Club of Hawthorne

Enjoy happy hour drinks and/or dinner at Jam's with Hot Club of Hawthorne’s gypsy jazz and vintage swing.

The Hot Club of Hawthorne was named after French gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt's group the Hot Club of France Quintet, which itself was named after the "Hot Clubs" which were European jazz appreciation societies in the 1930s. There have been countless "Hot Club" bands since then.

The repertoire consists of gypsy jazz standards including Django originals, swing tunes mostly from the 20s and 30s, some Latin numbers, and a few comedic film soundtrack songs. The group is a collective of many musicians -- including some of Portland's best! -- and can perform as a duo, trio, quartet, quintet, or sextet, depending on the venue.

    Wanna thank you all one more time for coming to the show and being a great audience. The Hot Club has lately been featuring different talent every show (and usually, two guitars for a proper gypsy jazz rhythm section) -- so I hope you will come see us again some time. Also, we welcome any suggestions about where else would be a good place for us to play. I will definitely be joining you at a meetup soon!

    I really enjoyed the performance. I don't recall the exact playlist but most of the tunes were recognizable standards. The good news is that we can see/hear the Hot Club on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month.

    Update on meeting: we'll have a table reserved for us right by the stage (thanks Jeffree!), so should be easy to find (and will also have sign on table). Please bring cash to pay for drinks and food; it make it a lot easier for the servers. See you Thursday evening.
