‘Hot Club at The Hook’ with Red Hot Django Peppers, Mississippi Hot Club, and Gypsy Mania

Get your tickets for A HOT night of HOT club at Hook and Ladder Theater! Red Hot Django Peppers head up the night with Mississippi Hot Club, & Gypsy Mania. Reserve a seat, buy a ticket, and bring your dance partner.

Mississippi Hot Club showcases the distinct style of music pioneered by maestro guitarist Django Reinhardt during the 1930s-1940s in Paris, France. This hot club is an all string jazz ensemble with la pompe rhythm guitar, upright bass, and the lively improvisation of a solo guitar and violin. Staying true to the 1930s hot club sound, MHC also adds a healthy spread of modern twists. During a live set, you can expect them to play romantic ballads, American jazz standards, European folk, and science fiction theme songs. This troupe is sure to get you swinging with their virtuosic style and expert arrangements. Their latest album, Swing Cities, tips its hat to the Twin Cities swing dance scene, and to the cities around the world who keep the traditions of gypsy jazz and swing alive and vibrant as ever.

“Mississippi Hot Club has become one of the Midwest’s preeminent string bands. Originally an homage to French Gypsy Jazz, the quartet’s music has begun to take on a more eclectic, adventurous persona as other influences have crept into the palette.”-Twin Cities Jazz Fest

Gypsy Mania “Hot Club” Quartet, a Twin Cities-based swing jazz band, performs a timeless jazz tradition commonly known as Gypsy Jazz, a blend of traditional Roma music and swing jazz. Originating in Paris in the early 1930s, the ‘Hot Club’ jazz tradition brings back happy memories of the swing jazz era, and for all an opportunity to nod, tap, or hit the dance floor. Their music keeps audience members on the edge (or out) of their chairs with the band’s formidable improvisational prowess, and exceptional stylistic dimension. A group not to be missed! Performing over 16 years, the ensemble includes the unmistakable mastery of jazz violinist Gary Schulte, the diverse guitar styling of Glen Helgeson, the tasty refined work of acoustic bassist Steve Pikal, and the rhythmic sensibility of jazz drummer Nathan Norman. Their self-titled CD, Gypsy Mania “Hot Club” Swing Jazz (2009), offers spontaneous and vivid performances in the Django Reinhardt tradition and
includes savvy originals by guitarist and bandleader Glen Helgeson.

The Red Hot Django Peppers bring jazz manouche into the future with their fiery, unique take on the genre. Consisting of Dr. Ryan Piccone on lead guitar, Ian Stenlund on rhythm guitar, Danny Lentz on violin, and Sean Roderick on Bass. With each member hailing from a different musical background, this music gets a unique treatment with thrilling surprises at every performance. The Django Peppers have played to sold out rooms at The Dakota, Cedar Cultural Center, Crooners, and Icehouse.
