Music at the Dancing Fish: The Hot Club of Troy
August 30 @ 10:30 am
~A Portion of the $10 Admission Fee goes to Whidbey Island Nourishes (W.I.N.)~
The Hot Club Of Troy plays music in the style of the renowned Quintet of the Hot Club of France, and its legendary leader: guitarist Django Reinhardt. Reinhardt, along with the immortal violinist Stéphane Grappelli created a genre sometimes called Gypsy jazz, Gypsy Swing, Manouche swing, or just plain Django Music.
The Hot Club of Troy’s music swings with a wild abandon that allows sparkling melodies to rise from the pulsing rhythm guitars and bass. Guitarist Troy Chapman, deeply versed in the playing style of the great Gypsy guitar master, introduces audiences to the grooving dance tunes and the haunting melodies of an earlier time that sound as joyful and fresh today as the day they were written.
Joined by the outstanding musicianship of guitarist Keith Bowers and bassist Kristi O’Donnell, The Hot Club of Troy will leave you enthralled, inspired and tapping your toes.
