Hot Club Cool Yule

Snowy Owl Theater

Friday, December 2, 2016 – 7:00pm

 

The Hot Club of San Francisco is an ensemble of accomplished and versatile musicians who celebrate the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s pioneering Quintette du Hot Club de France with style and panache

 

Certainly the The Hot Club of San Francisco is a virtuosic group that specializes in conjuring that era (see their masterful Bohemian Maestro for a recent example). But there’s a wealth of delicious humor here that goes beyond anything that legendary pair ever produced.

 

For instance, check out the inspired derangement of “Djingle Bells,” and “Don Rudolfo” (as in Red-Nosed Reindeer), a sultry tango that ultimately flows into the “Habanera” from “Carmen” (honest). There’s also a red-hot “Sugar Rum Cherry” that swings the Nutcracker into a whole new orbit. Yet just when you get used to a jovial ride, the Hot Club throws out a gorgeous string arrangement of “I Wonder As I Wander,” getting serious about the season. And there are still more surprises to come, although it would be like giving away a movie plot to describe them all.

 

Tickets: $22 General Admission, $24 at the door, $12 Students
