The Hot Club Collective is the sound of smokey, bohemian cafés and swinging dance halls. Mixing frenetic gypsy jazz with mellow ballads and covers of well-known classics, this fantastic 3 to 6-piece know how to create the perfect atmosphere.

Combining soaring violin (5-piece), raucous guitar and a pumping rhythm section, the band pay homage to Django Reinhardt, Stéphane Grappelli and the hedonistic spirit of the jazz age.

The band were fantastic and beyond all of our expectations! They created a brilliant atmosphere at our wedding and were professional throughout the day. Keith, Wedding, Surrey
