The Hot Club of New England is a musical collective featuring the top swing, gypsy, and hot jazz musicians in the New England area. Founded when jazz power couple vocalist Atla DeChamplain and pianist Matt DeChamplain teamed up with violinist Jason Anick, guitarist Max O'Rourke, and bassist Greg Loughman of the internationally renowned gypsy jazz group The Rhythm Future Quartet, HCNE is on a mission to bring the elegant and classic style of the swing era and the roaring 20's to a modern audience. Their music contains echoes of Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, and other legends of the Great American Songbook, tinged with the French Manouche style of the great Django Reinhardt and the Quintette du Hot Club de France. The core instrumentation of voice, violin, piano, acoustic guitar, and upright bass (with the option of adding piano, drums, clarinet, accordion, etc.) works exceptionally well for intimate spaces and events, while also having the power to draw people to the dance floor.
Hot Club of New England accompanied our Winter Gala with elegant swing tunes. They were very good and I would recommend them to anyone!
We had Hot Club perform at a corporate event with an upscale Art Deco period/Roaring Twenties theme. They were very easy to work with, and our guests enjoyed them immensely. They looked and sounded fantastic!! Recommended highly.
We hired these guys for a corporate party casino night and they were fabulous! Communication before the event was very prompt and it was all very easy. On the night, the guys were very professional, played great rat pack-style music which the crowd loved! Would highly recommend!
