Post by: ptbass75 on May 09, 2019, 10:59:03 AM
Born of Queens but with roots embedded in both African-American and European “gypsy” musical traditions, the Cold Club of Queens perform Jazz Manouche, or the Hot Club style of jazz popularized by guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephan Grapelli.  Founded in 1930’s France, this  unique sub-genre of Jazz is typified by driving guitars, fast licks and toe tapping melodies and grooves.  Come on out and experience the Cold Club of Queens’ distinct interpretations of jazz and Latin standards.  If you close your eyes and listen, you may find yourself whisked away to Parisian café from a bygone era.
