Rose City Hot Club: Rose ~ Gallery

Traditional Manouche style (gypsy) guitars along with a full-size acoustic upright doublebass comprise the core instrumentation for the Rose City Hot Club's exciting gypsy jazz.
The Rose City Hot Club plays acoustic swing melodic jazz in the classic style popularized by the world famous guitarist Django Reinhardt throughout Europe during the 1920's, 30's and 40's as well as during a well received US tour.
Django Reinhardt fell in love with the style of popular American swing-jazz music and blended it with traditional Gypsy music.
Django and the incredible violinist Stephane Grapelli were featured in the popular band The Quintet Hot Club of France.
Their music was called "Le Jazz Hot".  Django also wrote many original tunes and performed his own versions of most well known American swing standards.  His musical style remains very popular everywhere and has affectionately become known as Gypsy Jazz.
