Hot Club of Detroit @Nighttown Sat & Sun

Hot Club of Detroit
CD release party featuring music from their brand new CD "Night Town"
Saturday & Sunday, August 16 & 17
Saturday 8 PM, Sunday 7 PM

Back in 1930s Paris, the Hot Club de France kept music fans jumping and dance floors filled to their intricate and lively brand of gypsy jazz. In 21st century Detroit, the fans are jumpin' and the dance floors are filled, this time to the sound of the Hot Club of Detroit, an electrifying and visionary ensemble that takes the traditions pioneered by Django Reinhardt and company and spins them in a way that's both reverent and refreshingly contemporary.

As guitarist and group leader Evan Perri explains, "We want to spread the music and keep the gypsy spirit alive. But we're from Detroit. Our influences come from stuff we grew up listening to here in Detroit. We just want to make music that's true to the spirit of Django but that's also true to ourselves."

Currently The Hot Club of Detroit is touring behind their brand new Mack Avenue records CD "Night Town" which features the new composition "Night Town" by Evan Perri. The composition and album title were inspired by the Hot Club's past successful engagements at Nighttown. The record was recorded in a studio right here in Cleveland. Nighttown is proud to be playing an integral role in the ascent of this great new group.

Don't miss the Hot Club of Detroit when the debut music from their brand new CD "Nighttown" live at the very club that inspired the name of the CD on Saturday and Sunday, August 16th and 17th.
