Nova Scotia’s Hot Club band

June 3rd, 2013

Swingology sixSwingology takes you back to Paris of the 1930s, when gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli formed the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, infusing the swing music of the era with the sounds of the gypsy camps and the rowdy Parisian dance halls to create a unique style unmatched for its driving rhythm, inventiveness, and excitement. Swingology is dedicated to bringing this style of jazz to new fans in Nova Scotia and beyond. Our songs range from classics of the swing era and Django originals to popular tunes and movie/TV themes of today, all done in the irresistible gypsy jazz style. You can check out our music in the right sidebar and our latest news below …
