Gypsy Mania "Hot Club" Quartet, a Twin Cities-based swing jazz band, performs a timeless jazz tradition commonly known as Gypsy Jazz, a blend of traditional Roma music and swing jazz. Originating in Paris in the early 1930s, the 'Hot Club' jazz tradition brings back happy memories of the swing jazz era, and for all an opportunity to nod, tap, or hit the dance floor. Their music keeps audience members on the edge (or out) of their chairs with the band's formidable improvisational prowess, and exceptional stylistic dimension. A group not to be missed! Performing over 16 years, the ensemble includes the unmistakable mastery of jazz violinist Gary Schulte, the diverse guitar styling of Glen Helgeson, the tasty refined work of acoustic bassist Steve Pikal, and the rhythmic power house of jazz drummer Jay Epstein. 
The Red Hot Django Peppers bring jazz manouche into the future with their fiery, unique take on the genre. Consisting of Dr. Ryan Piccone on lead guitar, Ian Stenlund on rhythm guitar, Danny Lentz on violin, and Sean Roderick on Bass. With each member hailing from a different musical background, this music gets a unique treatment with thrilling surprises at every performance. The Django Peppers have played to sold out rooms at The Dakota, Cedar Cultural Center, Crooners, and Icehouse. See less

"Mississippi Hot Club has become one of the Midwest's preeminent string bands. Originally an homage to French Gypsy Jazz, the quartet's music has begun to take on a more eclectic, adventurous persona as other influences have crept into the palette."-Twin Cities Jazz Fest.
