The Sound of 1930’s Parisian Glamour, the decadently scented scenes within Ritz Paris, swinging dance halls and smokey bohemian cafes.

Gypsy Jazz and melodious ballads of well known classics - certain to get the occasion in full swing. Soaring violin and raunchy guitars atop Parisian swinging beats fill the dancefloor in this colourful homage to Django Reinhardt, Stéphane Grappelli and the hedonistic spirit of the Gypsy Jazz age.

“We could not have asked for more! We were thrilled with their musicianship & professionalism.”

“We had Hot Club Ensemble perform at our wedding on September 5 at the Kensington Roof Gardens and are happy to recommend them to anyone. I selected them because of the older jazzier sound and they did not disappoint. In fact, so many of the guests asked about them during our reception that my wife began handing out business cards. I found the initial reservation/deposit process to be very easy, which was important because we were arranging this from the U.S. The band was fully set up and playing when the guests arrived at the reception. I simply gave the bands email to the reception organiser and they handled the details behind the scene. We could not ask for more. We were thrilled with their music and professionalism”

“The Talent, Musicianship, And Enthusiasm Of The Band Was Fantastic!”

“We booked the Hot Club Ensemble for our wedding and could not have hoped for a better performance. Whether supplying the music to accompany our meal, or performing a set for the evening entertainment, the talent, musicianship, and enthusiasm of the band was fantastic. Having the band perform was a truly brilliant addition to our big day!”

“A Foot-tapping, lively style…”

“Dear Hot Club Ensemble - thanks for your performance at our Garden Party on Sunday; the style of music was perfect for the occasion. We received lots of compliments about you, providing a foot-tapping, lively style whilst not being intrusive to the conversation. We’d certainly recommend you to others.”

Richard & Anna Wilson

“Real Troopers… Wonderful Musicians!”

“Thank you so much - the boys were outstanding yesterday and real troopers arriving in the pouring rain. They are wonderful musicians - to the point that I felt a bit guilty having them at such a small event as they deserve a big audience. It was particularly good to have them there when the weather had turned horrible as it really cheered up the day and kept everyone happy. They were great, and really nice lads as well. Thanks for all your help arranging it at short notice and for your brilliant recommendation.”
