The acclaimed Hot Club of San Francisco and the popular French vocalist Isabelle Fontaine have created 'Meet Me in Paris', a charming concert invoking an unforgettable Parisian experience.
Love songs and driving gypsy jazz are a combination made famous during the 20’s and 30’s in Paris by the legendary Hot Club de France, Django Reinhardt, and Stephane Grappelli. Following the First World War, the city became a gathering place for artists from around the world and The Hot Club’s unique sound of gypsy jazz reflects this inter-wartime collection of cultures. Keep time with the strum of the rhythm guitars and let the magical guitar and fiddle solos take you on a ride down the Seine and through the heart of the city. Ms. Fontaine’s mix of sweet and sultry songs adds a touch of beauty and authenticity that echoes the historic Ville-Lumière, “City of Light”.
This fast paced and one-of-a-kind show revived the soundtrack of the 1960’s and beyond. The music is 60’s Ameriachi instrumental pop! This show authentically re-created a sound that was quirky, retro, hip and brought back many fond memories!
