Summer Sounds REMIX: Hot Club of Baltimore featuring Michael Joseph Harris, Shawn Simon and vocalist Alexis Tantau
August 27, 2021 // 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Our favorite summer concert series, remixed with Hot Club of Baltimore featuring Michael Joseph Harris, Blake Meister, and Kris Belgica! Led by acclaimed guitarist Michael Joseph Harris, Hot Club of Baltimore performs a wide-ranging repertoire including the classic Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappeli style Hot Jazz repertoire, French musette, creative arrangements of Swing standards from the 30’s and 40’s, and show tunes from the American songbook. The ensemble ranges from a duo to a 7-piece ensemble that can include any combination of violin, accordion, trumpet, clarinet, sax, piano and drums.
Hot Club of Baltimore performed a sold-out show for the Napa Valley Jazz Society in 2016 and again in 2018 for a repeat performance which was also sold out. Hot Club has performed at Midwest Gypsy Swingfest, Baltimore Jazzfest, Django by the Sea, Charm City Django Jazzfest, and The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen to name a few. Harris’ arrangement of Django Reinhardt’s “Place de Brouckere,” the title track of the first Hot Club album, was featured on Django Festival #10, a compilation of the best Gypsy Jazz in the world by producer Jon Larsen in Oslo.
Their most recent album Hot Club of Baltimore featuring Alexis Tantau includes arrangements of Edith Piaf songs and Gypsy Jazz with 14 top area musicians.
We’re pleased to announce that our Summer Sounds concerts will be held LIVE at the Square for those seated at BSQ tables and chairs! A smaller event with a family feel, Summer Sounds Remix is the first in the series to welcome back in-person guests from 6-8pm.
For those who will be attending our May-August concerts in-person, there will be provided seating in our courtyard area and we’ll be live streaming on Facebook for those who wish to join virtually. We can’t wait to see you at the Square again!
A special thank you to our sponsors!
