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.
