The Twin Cities Hot Club represents Minnesota in the burgeoning revival of gypsy jazz originally popularized by Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli and the Hot Club of France in the 1920s and 30s. They recreate not only the famous la pompe (the pump) that distinguishes this romantic brand of acoustic jazz, but also gypsy bossanova, musette, bolero and swing. Twin Cities Hot Club perform this timeless deep-rooted music that is physical, and speaks directly to the heart.
Prolific players in the Minneapolis and St. Paul lindy hop scene, the Twin Cities Hot Club has been keeping Minnesota dancers warm in the winter and sweltering in the summer for nearly a decade! They're a great regional favorite.
