Accomplished and versatile musicians, Hot Club of San Francisco (HCSF) celebrates the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s pioneering Quintette du Hot Club de France, with style and panache. HCSF borrows the instrumentation of violin, bass, and guitars from the original Hot Club, while breathing new life into the music, with innovative arrangements of classic tunes and original compositions from the group’s superb lead guitarist, Paul Mehling. The group never fails to surprise and delight, featuring the amazing violin of two-time GRAMMY Award-winner Evan Price, the velvet vocals of Isabelle Fontaine and a swinging rhythm section. To hear the ensemble live, or on any of its 14 albums, is to be carried back to the small, smoky jazz clubs of 1930s Paris, and the refined lounge of the famous Hotel Ritz. Often called gypsy jazz, the music of The Hot Club of San Francisco has entranced audiences around the globe for 30 years. Acoustic Guitar magazine has hailed the group’s playing as “intricate, scorching and often brilliant.” With frequent national and international tours—from Iceland to Lincoln Center and the Monterey Jazz Festival—HCSF keeps this historic music fresh and alive. For their Potsdam performance, America's longest running gypsy swing ensemble will focus its creative mojo on the music of The Beatles. John, Paul, George & Django explores the vast treasure trove of songs from the Fab Four’s songbook. Founder Paul Mehling (the guiding spirit of the group) said he was first inspired to pick up a guitar following the Beatles’ epic appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. In appreciation, HCSF’s program reimagines familiar tunes such as All My Lovin, The Fool On The Hill and Hey Jude, in the style of the legendary Django Reinhardt.
This performance has been made possible with funds from the McElheran endowment.

The acclaimed Hot Club of San Francisco and the popular French vocalist, Isabelle Fontaine, have created Meet Me in Paris, a charming concert evoking the romance, charm, and vivre of Paris. Love songs and driving gypsy jazz are a combination made famous in 1930’s Paris by the legendary Hot Club de France, Django Reinhardt, and Stephane Grappelli. Following World War I, the city was a gathering place for artists from around the world and the Hot Club’s unique sound of gypsy jazz reflects this inter-wartime collection of cultures. Keep time with the strum of guitars and let magical violin melodies take you on a ride down the Seine and through the heart of the city. Ms. Fontaine’s mix of sweet and sultry songs adds a touch of beauty and authenticity that echoes the historic Ville-Lumière, the city of light.
Hot Club of San Francisco : "John, Paul, George & Django"
To hear the ensemble Hot Club of San Francisco live, or on any of their 14 albums, is to be carried back to the 1930s and the small, smoky jazz clubs of Paris or the refined lounge of the Hotel Ritz. The musicians – including Paul Mehling, Isabelle Fontaine, Evan Price and Sam Rocha – celebrate the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Their contemporary jazz and swing, often called gypsy jazz, has entranced audiences around the world for more than 20 years. Mehling has been dubbed the godfather of American gypsy jazz. Fontaine, born and raised in the French countryside, had no intention of becoming a professional musician when she started singing with friends for fun. Price is steadily becoming one of the most respected jazz violinists of his generation. Rocha is largely self-taught on the string bass. The ensemble borrows the instrumentation of violin, bass and guitars from the original Hot Club while breathing new life into the music with innovative arrangements of classic tunes and original compositions from the group’s superb lead guitarist, Mehling. Featuring the amazing violin of two-time Grammy winner Price, the velvet vocals of Fontaine and a swinging rhythm section, the group never fails to surprise and delight as reflected in their 2016 album John, Paul, George and Django.
