at City Winery Nashville
- 9:00pm APPX
Love life, swing hard
The Hot Club of Nashville tear it up with Special Guest for this show, Brent Mason on guitar.
In homage to the Hot Club genre (Django Reinhardt gypsy-swing), The Hot Club of Nashville brings fiery guitar and violin soloing on repertoire from the 1930's and 40's such as Honeysuckle Rose and Sweet Georgia Brown. The Hot Club is lead by Britain-born Richard Smith who owns a guitar signed "To my hero, Richard,- Jerry Reed and Chet Atkins.“ Rhythm guitarist Pat Bergeson (expect Howard Levy-like harmonica solos, too) moved to Nashville at the request of Chet Atkins to record and join his band, where he remained several years. Fiddle player Stuart Duncan has played with Mark Knopfler, Emmylou Harris and joined Robert Plant and Alison Krauss on the tour for their critically acclaimed album, “Raising Sand“. Bassist Charlie Chadwick, who created the Chadwick Folding Bass (that's right, folks, an acoustic bass that folds in half), joins the group and Chris Brown on snare drum and special guest, Brent Mason on guitar.
The group has performed at the Montreal Jazz Festival as well as abroad including the Tommy Emmanuel Guitar Festival in Rietberg/Germany and Poland. They are a mainstay at the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society Convention as well as The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.
Expect original material as well – songs so reminiscent of an old swing standard that you would think they've been loved for decades . "The Nashville-based Hot Club Band creates a magically fun musical experience... the real deal. It is a fun loving, story telling, toe tapping, tear jerking, sit back and enjoy experience for the listener. A certified 'less of the same' endeavor." (Bruce Pulver, JazzReview.com)
