The Hot Club of Hawthorne is a collective of musicians in the Portland, OR area who play gypsy jazz: old-time (20s/30s) swing & world music played on acoustic stringed instruments (sometimes clarinet or accordion), with exotic Old World flair, a fiery delivery, and feelgood charm.
The Hot Club usually performs as a quartet, but is flexible. The stylistic range varies from mellow, elegant background music (suitable for dinner/cocktail parties) to high-energy swing (suitable for dancing). Sets can be all instrumental or all vocal; it's usually a mix. Also in the repertoire are whimsical soundtrack & novelty songs -- fun for the whole family!
We often hear "it was just perfect & added so much!"
Good communication beforehand, on time and organized, and friendly and talented musicians. If you want something more in a band, you are unable to be pleased at all! They were the perfect complement to our wedding, and we will seek them out as a married couple just to hear them again. Seriously. Hire these guys.
