A jazz ensemble specializing in the Gypsy jazz sound made famous by guitarist Django Reinhardt, the Hot Club of Detroit was formed in 2001 by Reinhardt disciple and virtuoso guitarist Evan Perri while he was attending Wayne State University.
The group quickly became a favorite in area bars and clubs and signed with Mack Avenue Records, releasing the self-titled “Hot Club of Detroit” in 2006 to much acclaim, following it with “Night Town” in 2008. “It’s About That Time” which expanded somewhat on the band’s Gypsy jazz base to include other strains of jazz appeared in 2010.
In 2012, the Hot Club of Detroit returned with “Junction” displaying an electrifying and visionary ensemble that takes the traditions pioneered by Reinhardt and spins them in a way that’s both reverent and refreshingly contemporary. Their energetic and unique acoustic-electric sound features Evan Perri on lead guitar, Julien Labro on accordion, Ivan Peña on rhythm guitar and Jordan Schug on bass.
