Milwaukee Hot Club plays “gypsy jazz”, the music of the late great Django Reinhardt and his modern descendants. Our music is a high energy mix of swing, bossa, and gypsy samba rhythms. Although we are primarily instrumental, vocal tunes comprise up to 30% of our set. MHC is 2 gypsy guitars, upright bass, and usually sax and/or clarinet. We perform acoustically and with amplification designed to preserve the acoustic qualities of our instruments.
Our music has been enthusiastically received at festivals, cafes, bars, and house parties and we’ve been featured in live performances on two Milwaukee radio stations. We are equally comfortable playing to a thousand or a dozen people, so let us come play for you!
