One of China's premier gypsy jazz bands, the Hot Club of Beijing, is promising to turn up the heat in Shanghai next month.

One of China’s premier gypsy jazz bands, the Hot Club of Beijing, is promising to turn up the heat in Shanghai next month.

The band was founded on January 23 2010, the date which marks the 100th birthday of legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt, who is viewed as the creator of gypsy jazz and the founder of the Hot Club of France.

Carrying on the tradition of Reinhardt, the band includes traditional gypsy waltzes, American swing classics, fiery Latin pieces and traditional Chinese music in their repertoire, adding their international mix of flavors to jazz music. 

The Hot Club of Beijing promises to take the audience back to a time when the united nations of jazz music fans swung to the unmistakable sounds of the 1930s and 1940s.

This multi-national band consists of vocalist and guitarist Vince Vahram, drummer Claudi Azizaj, clarinetist Toni Moretso from France, guitarist Doug Martin from America and double bassist Pikar Rozi from China. The band has been active all over China since it was formed and has been participating in numerous music festivals.

Last summer the Hot Club of Beijing released their studio album “Autumn Leaves,” which will be played on the live show in Shanghai.
