Grove City College’s Showcase Series features the Hot Club of San Francisco at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 20 in Arnold Recital Hall of Pew Fine Arts Center on Campus.
Come celebrate the glorious era of Hemingway’s “movable feast” with one of the best jazz ensembles anywhere as the acclaimed Hot Club of San Francisco and the popular French vocalist Isabelle Fontaine bring “Meet Me in Paris,” a charming concert invoking an unforgettable Parisian experience, to campus.
Love songs and driving gypsy jazz are a combination made famous by the legendary Hot Club de France, Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli during the 20s and 30s in the City of Light. Following the First World War, the city became a gathering place for artists from around the world and The Hot Club’s unique sound of gypsy jazz reflects this cultural mashup. Keep time with the strum of the rhythm guitars and let the magical guitar and fiddle solos take you on a ride down the Seine and through the heart of an era. Fontaine’s mix of sweet and sultry songs adds a touch of beauty and authenticity that echoes the historic City of Light.
